A Sign of Spring?

I was on this playground at my school when I noticed this tree. This deciduous oak has yet to leaf out, but but you can see it is "bearing fruit." I counted nine playground balls stuck in its branches! I told some of my kindergartners that now we know where balls come from: they grow on trees!

I couldn't get a single kid to buy it.

I've been told the tree is dead.
