Planned Subaru dealership must build around oak tree

September 6, 2013
ELGIN, IL — Plans for a Subaru dealership, featuring a carwash, has been given the go ahead after amending their plans to save a 200-year-old oak tree on the site.

The dealership agreed to protect the tree after city commissioners objected to it being removed from the property or destroyed. The city also adopted a tree preservation ordinance earlier this year.

The oak will be protected by a retaining wall and no construction will be performed within a 41-foot diameter, according to the Daily Herald report.
