I know "The Shawshank redemption" is a favorite movie of many and was noted a couple oof times in a recent thread.

The tree filmed in the movie, which has become a tourist destination, was damaged by lightning years ago and fell in a wind storm on Friday.

Fans quickly took to Twitter to express their condolences, including one user who expressed hope that something good is made of the wood.

Located in Richland county, OH, in the film it was a scene set in Buxton, ME. Dufresne (Tim Robbins) tells Red (Morgan freeman), to find the place when he gets out of prison.

"I have had a chance to see the tree and if it's a stump left, I'm sure people will still come see it because hope is a good thing, and a good thing never dies,"
-Jodie Snavely, Mansfield & Richland County Convention and Visitors Bureau.
