A group devoted to saving a century-old tree on Parliament Hill wants more information about its health to be released before it gets the axe. People gathered on Parliament Hill Sunday to learn more about this historic elm tree that may get cut down as renovations to Centre Block start. Clarkin said elm trees are "extremely tough" and are known for recovering from damage. The elm tree is near the statue of Sir John A. Macdonald, on the east side of Centre Block. The NCC also has to give permission to PSPC to remove the tree, since it's on Parliament Hill.
