Tree planted to honor Sean Schielke, who was killed on 9/11, survives Southbury tornado

A Japanese red maple tree that was planted on Horse Fence Hill Road in Southbury, Connecticut survived last week’s tornado, reports Brian McCready in the Southbury Patch.

The tree was planted in honor of Sean Schielke, who was killed in the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks at the age of 27. Schielke worked for Cantor Fitzgerald, a bond firm on top of the North Tower of the World Trade Center.
