A BATTLE is raging over the fate of a 100-year-old raintree within the grounds of the Ipoh Methodist Girls’ School (MGS).

The school alumni are fighting to save the iconic tree, which is featured on the commemorative badges made in conjunction with the school’s 120th anniversary in 2017, from being chopped down or relocated.
