    Heard about this on AZ news this morning, that's a bummer! I was there a few times as a kid.

    Whoa! That sucks. Was definitely on the list of things to see. I'm a little surprised they never tried to reinforce it at some point.

    Definitely a bummer. I do believe there is more than one tree that you can drive through. I remember seeing signs at multiple locations the last time I drove down hwy 1

    This sucks. I had a trip planned out there this past summer and seeing that was on my list of things to do. Never got out there and now I'll never see it. Just damn.

    Still, it's one more iconic attraction that's no longer there.

    Holy shit. That thing has been there forever. Pretty sad at least I got to see it.

    No, but according to the stories I read it wasn't doing all that great and with all of the rain & wind it just keeled over.
    Surprising that it's lasted this long with so much of it cut away....

    Saw that this morning, a real bummer. Glad to have seen it before, but wish my kids could have seen it.
