MARIETTA, Ga. -- It was a tricky operation Tuesday to remove a 200-year-old tree that topped over at Marietta National Cemetery.

Gusty winds last week were blamed for knocking over the historic tree.

But as crews removed the tree, the cemetery's director said they also had to be careful about not damaging the headstones.

The cemetery has been around since the 1860s.
