Last Wright Oak Tree Is Toppled by Storm

From Times Wire Reports

The last of three oak trees that architect Frank Lloyd Wright encircled with his low-slung home and studio in 1911 was toppled in a fierce thunderstorm, damaging the home. Work crews cut away the 225-year-old, 55-foot-tall white oak, which left a hole in the drafting studio where Wright, who died in 1959, designed some of his best-known works. The Spring Green home, part of a 600-acre complex, was named a national historic landmark in 1976 and is widely considered one of the nation’s most important architectural works.
