Volunteers come forward to cut down Detroit senior's dead tree

(WXYZ) - A massive dead tree towered over a Detroit home, causing damage or downed lines with each falling limb. 

A great grandmother constantly worried that the dead tree might come crashing down on her house... or her yard where her great-grandchild loves to play.

She's a single 72-year-old who said she couldn't afford to cut it down. The 7 Action News Call For Action team asked for help, and the response was immediate.

Arbor Tree Service was at Nina Hill's house on Thursday, helping remove the tree. 

Nina embraced one of the workers, crying because she was so happy the problem was finally being taken care of--putting her mind at ease.
