“Robert Hill Jr. looked over the street plan for his new subdivision and shook his head. The best path for the main road would require removing one too many trees: an ancient oak that had held its ground since before the American Revolution. Hill couldn’t imagine taking it down. Today that magnificent oak is one of the most prominent features of North Raleigh’s Ethan’s Glen.”
