The remains of a 150-year-old valley oak tree, shot through a wrought iron fence, rest at the Bridgeport Marketplace.

Green foliage grows on the remains of the 150-year-old valley oak tree at the Brideport Marketplace, indicating life.

The tree was a staple of the shopping center before it collapsed in late April.

“It had bugs, so the inside was hollow, and then it kept growing,” said Marnie McNulty, assistant manager of Yoga Works, located in the same shopping center. “The weight of the limbs caused it to break apart because internally, there was no structure to support it. They left that because it’s still alive. There’s actually the tree trunk to grow again. It will just continue from there,” she said.
