A reader and Wilmette resident shares photos and a poem of the "Ancient Ash."
Ode to an Ancient Ash Standing with us for so long. Now gone. We will mourn. Since 1746, for generations… How many walked under your shade? How many sheltered in your canopy? How many nested in your branches? With us for so long. Now gone. We will miss you.
