In Winnipeg, Manitoba, in the late 1950's, city officials wanted to remove a majestic elm to make way for a new street.  Outraged, a group of women locked arms around the tree in protest. The city backed down and the tree was saved. 

Years later, the tree was lost to vandalism. But after it was taken down, a new elm was planted to take its place. 

The Wolseley Elm is now part of Winnipeg's folklore.
