What was left of a 200-year-old oak tree made famous by the movie "Shawshank Redemption" was chopped up and hauled away Saturday by the co-owner of the Mansfield, Ohio, field in which it once stood.
The huge oak tree once stood tall at the entrance to Malabar Farm State Park and was a popular stop along the "Shawshank Trail" driving tour, The Mansfield News Journal reports.
In 2011, high winds knocked down a portion of the tree that was rotten.
The tree suffered more damage when a storm came through the area last year.
Dan Dees told The Mansfield New Journal he plans to use the wood to make a table.
The tree became part of cinematic history in 1994 when it was featured in the final scene "Shawshank Redemption," starring Tim Robbins and Morgan Freeman. In the movie, Freeman's character finds an important letter Robbins' character buried under the tree.
