The kids may not have been yelling "Timber," but the first tree to be used in the 2015 NCAA Final Four men's basketball court has fallen. Located within the Forest Park School District's forest, 461 Forest Park students watched and learned about forestry and logging as members of Connor Sports cut down the tree.
This will not be the only tree used to create the court for the upcoming tournament. In all, it takes about 100 trees, usually coming from different forests, to make one court, as the students learned Wednesday. Learn more about the process in the video above.
