That good old tree

They cut down a huge oak tree in my front yard. It began to interfere with the electrical wires. Typically they come and ask/tell they’re going to cut down a tree prior to showing up with 2 dump trucks, a truck with a crane, a dozer, a chainsaw and a crew of 8, but sometimes they don’t. 🙂

I didn’t count the rings, but the tree was probably 75 -100 years old.

It grew by a dirt road and died by pavement.

Millions of cars passed it and never noticed it, but dozens of squirrels and birds found it lovely.

There are a few different ways I can take this post, but I’m just going to appreciate that big oak tree.

Is there a tree you appreciate in your life? Is there a tree you loved as a kid?
