    Hidden history - Northeast Times
    Walking through a stretch of Pennypack Park tucked away between Holmesburg and Frankford avenues, Jason Sherman is devastated to see a forked sycamore tree has been damaged by a fallen trunk. "Someone's gotta fight for those trees," he mutters as we hike back up the slope back to the trail, twigs and rotting leaves crunching under our feet.
