“Tree of Life” was once a 35-foot tall sculpture carved from a red oak tree stump in 1955 by Anthony Caponi. The hollow base of the stump was filled in with concrete to stabilize the tree and now that’s all that’s left. Carpenter ants carved out the interior of the tree until it collapsed.

The original sculpture featured nude figures standing on top of one another. It’s located in Caponi Art Park.
