Two Madison men were injured on Tuesday, August 16 when a tree fell on them during a walk on the Capitol Square, despite reassurance that the government had been actively monitoring the trees in the area.
For seemingly unknown reasons, as the weather was sunny and only slightly breezy, the tree splintered suddenly and fell on the pair. The State of Wisconsin had released a statement that they had been working proactively to monitor the tree situation, marking dangerous trees for removal. Because the tree in question had shown no outward signs of decay, the State will send another team to check the trees again.
