Tree tower closed for repairs in Cox Arboretum
MIAMI TWP, Ohio (WKEF/WRGT) - Probably the most iconic part of Cox Arboretum in Miami Township is the 65 foot tree tower.
However, that tower is currently closed to the public after it was deemed unsafe. A fungus had reportedly impacted the structural strength of three support logs.
Repair crews were out to make repairs Monday afternoon, dismantling the structure. That part of the process is expected to take about one week.
It's expected to be rebuilt, and back open for hikers, by the end of the year.
