Tree Stump Driveway 071916 Storm

Just before the renovations started, we had a wild thunderstorm
that took out three very large treetops in my yard so we’re
also having tree work done. This is what’s left of a twin trunk
tree in the driveway, stump not yet ground.

Tree Stump Mulberry 071916 Storm

The remains of one of my favorite trees, a mulberry that
wasn’t damaged but had been living on borrowed time
because of its drastic lean caused by a neighboring twin
oak. Now it’s just a stump surrounded by ivy.

Mulberry Tree 080116 Before Cutdown

My late lamented mulberry which happened to be a trash tree.
It grew out of the remains of an oak that we lost in another storm
years ago and became one of the prettiest trees in the yard. Sniff 😦
