A thunderstorm moved through Mansfield, Ohio, at 2:30 p.m. July 29, 2011, producing straight-line winds. It severely damaged the tree made famous by the film ?The Shawshank Redemption.? The tree is on private property but that never stopped people from visiting it and even proposing under its vast branches. Half of those branches are now gone. The owner of the property has not said if the tree will be removed due to the damage.
