This Old Tree
Recent storms have caused major tree damage locally. It was too early for those heavy wet snows as the trees were still in leaf. This old tree is on a street near my workplace. You can see all the woodpecker holes plus there are lots of squirrels who like to nest in this old tree.Do you know what that means? The heart of the tree is weak or destroyed.
Here is what happened to the other branch of this tree. This old tree is/was about 100 years old and below this shot, the trunk is about 5 feet across. It is sad, but the whole tree will probably have to come down.
