Storm Badly Damages "Shawshank Redemption" Tree

Posted: August 3rd, 2011 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Storm Badly Damages "Shawshank Redemption" TreeSubmit Comment
The Ohio tree that appeared at the end of "The Shawshank Redemption" was heavily damaged on Friday by a storm that split the tree in half.

There were talks of knocking the remains down, but since the tree is a major tourist attraction in the area, the town decided to somehow preserve it. "We highly encourage folks who want to see the tree in its natural location to visit now, while part of it remains standing," said a rep for Mansfield Convention and Visitors Bureau.

Officials are planning to meet with property owners in the next few weeks to decide how to best handle the situation. Check out some of the before-and-after pictures of the tree below.

Oh no!! What's next??!! Jeez, I hope that long straight fence from Fargo doesn't collapse! Seriously, it is a shame when a cinematic landmark is ruined-Shawshank is a great movie and I wish I could visit the locations where it was filmed. I suppose I will have to make do with where The Adventures of Priscilla,Queen of the Desert, Wolf Creek, Red Dog(just up the road from my farm-check out the trailer!!)& Rabbit Proof Fence were filmed. Not too bad i spose!!

'Minkowski's dead bando.'

Seriously though, kinda missiing him. The threads seem way shorter without him.

He was a brave and brilliant troll.

a tree from a short scene in a movie is a tourist attraction? You must lead one boring pathetic life to spend money to go look at a f*cking tree.
