The Law Office of David S. Bouschor II is located in the historic Evers’ farmhouse, two blocks off of the Denton Square at 217 E. Oak Street. The tax records indicate that the house was built in 1885 and was the Evers Family residence until they built a much larger house at the corner of Oak and Welch street just off of the University of North Texas Campus.
Denton Attorney David Bouschor loves having his office in the antique home. However, it is not without issues. With a building that are well over 130 years old, there are a myriad of upkeep matters that arise as with any older property.
The current upkeep issue is with a 100 year old American Elm tree. The tree has been dying and has started rotting from the inside out. It has developed into a safety hazard and as a result must be removed. David Bouschor said, “We are saddened that nothing can be done to save the tree. Unfortunately, it has become sickly and must be taken down. If we attempted to keep the tree, there is the possibility of it falling and causing property damage or even injuring someone.”
The hope is that the 12 foot in diameter stump of the tree can be preserved. Shel Silverstein once wrote the book “The Giving Tree” that tells the life story of a tree and all of the good things the tree provided over the course of its life. “Our oak tree has been a great source of shade and comfort for many generations and if the stump is still in good shape, we will turn into a bench for people to rest and enjoy the day, just like the tree in the Silverstein book”, said Bouschor.
The Law Office of David S. Bouschor will also replace the tree once taken down with a new, young and healthy tree. The oak sapling will be placed on the corner of Oak street and Oakland.
