The so-called "granny" tree in Menlo Park may live to become a great-granny.

The tree stands in a right of way in the Fair Oaks neighborhood owned by the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission. It had wanted to turn granny into sawdust, but residents rebelled.

The SFPUC has now voted to save the tree.
