Two weeks ago we told you about a 75 foot tree blocking the waterflow in bayou manchac.

Today--it's gone.

After our story aired, the Department of Wildlife and Fisheries called Ascension Parish.

And Wednesday afternoon, drainage workers pulled the massive tree out of the water.

It took two back hoes to grab hold of it and haul the tree out.

Residents say removing the tree makes a big difference.
