Craig Duncan of NatureMaker Monumental Trees in Carlsbad, Calif., affixes a limb, above and at right, to the great oak tree being constructed in the foyer of the Sauder Heritage Inn in Archbold, Ohio.
The tree, which has a steel frame, was unloaded in pieces. When fully assembled, probably by Tuesday, it will be 25 feet tall with a trunk 4 feet in diameter.
