LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A tree at Ball State University -- once adorned with used chewing gum -- has been cut down.

Over the weekend, students discovered a stump where the tree once stood.

Ball State says the "Gum Tree" was removed to make way for a new project designed to improve pedestrian and bike access through the area.
