A tree that has been leaning over the deck of Barton Springs Pool for about 100 years will go on to see another day as Austin Parks and Recreation department officials delay its removal.

The pecan tree, “Flo,” which has a fungal infection, will no longer be honored in a ceremony on Sept. 13 or removed on Sept. 14 as PARD officials review “additional considerations,” according to a news release.

“Austin Parks and Recreation values input from the public regarding concerns about removal, and the department is pausing to consider communications from the community," a PARD spokesperson said.

“Flo” was diagnosed with brittle cinder fungus on Aug. 15, which can cause wood decay and lead to a collapse of the tree.

Four different arborists recommended the city remove the tree due safety concerns and a lack of ability to control the infection, according to the news release.

Community members are encouraged to send stories, photos and memories of the tree to [email protected].
