Goodbye to the 100-year oak

A couple of Sunday’s ago, a third of the 100+ year-old oak in our front yard came crashing down. You can see from the photos that the damage was due to rot which had been going for on for quite a while. It’s a huge limb and we were lucky that it missed the house, or considerable damage would have occurred. And so sadly enough, the rest of the tree had to be taken out.

And here’s the stump. There’s tons of wood, huge pieces of it that will need heavy machinery to move, and I’m not sure how that’s going to happen. That tree provided an abundance of food for the (nasty and pesky) squirrels and the canopy provided shade. 

I’m going to miss that tree.
