Feedback: Display oak in museum

I have to agree with the removal of the Garry oak as a safety hazard.

However, I do not agree having it turned into a piece of standing art. The idea is admirable, but instead of one idea, here's two:

Being an artist myself, I agree with the trunk of the tree being converted into a beautiful piece of art that will accent Oak Harbor's atmosphere.

With the remains of the tree top, since this tree has become a part of Oak Harbor's history, preserve the remaining portion of the tree and have it displayed at Oak Harbor's museum.
