The famous Shawshank Redemption tree is dead


I must admit I didn't think much of the oak tree the first time I laid eyes on him. He might'a been important on the outside, but also, he was just a tree. That was my first impression of the tree.

But it didn't take long for any Shawshank Redemption fan to realise the significance of the old oak, where Andy leads Red on their path to reunite. But now, unfortunately, the famous tree has fallen due to the wind, and fans are mourning its loss. 

"It's obviously quite sad for Shawshank fans but we tell fans that visitors can still come to see the Shawshank oak tree while it's here," said Jodie Snavely from the Mansfield and Richland County Convention and Visitors' Bureau.
