The funny part is there are few photos of the tree being removed. Apparently the one photo was posted by the Augusta Chronicle but it has since been removed.
In it place several media outlets are using this photo of another tree on an Augusta street to either illustrate the damage or even claiming it is the Eisenhower Pine.

Rumor has it that a loblolly pine of suitable size has for years been readied for transplant and will be in place for the first week of April.
Anyone who as visited the course quickly notices the abundance of pine trees and the lack of Oak, Maple, Sweet Gum and Elm. The reason is that the Augusta management consider hardwoods to be "litter trees" who shed their leaves making playing golf difficult. So pine trees line the fairways of Augusta with only a few stately oaks around the club house and those far from the fairways.
