Save the "Mr. Al" Live Oak Tree!

To: Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development et al. We the undersigned request that the Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development and any other pertinent entities spare from destruction the 120- to 150-year-old live oak known as the "Mr. Al" oak. This sizeable live oak is located on public property along Highway 90 near New Iberia, Louisiana, and is registered with the Live Oak Society (tree #5915). We ask that the Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development et al. spare the tree by moving a proposed service road to a new location a short distance from the tree, so that building of the road does not require the tree's destruction.
