The iconic Tree of Knowledge outside the School of the Arts (Sota) is no more. The decaying 33.6m Angsana tree, estimated to be about 40 years old, was cut down for safety reasons yesterday. Also known as the Sota Tree, it had been incorporated into the design of the facade when the school was built at Dhoby Ghaut eight years ago.
