Macy’s Great Tree has been removed  the Lenox Mall store after a botched effort to take it down for the season ended with the tree dangling from the roof.

According to Reporter Newspapers’ news partner CBS Atlanta, crews removed the tree at about 7 p.m. Jan. 2. Work crews had been trying to haul the giant pine tree from the department store’s roof when the crane buckled, sending the tree crashing onto its side.

Macy’s spokeswoman Melissa Goff said, “We are assessing the damage and investigating the cause of the incident.”
