Yup, our neighbor said when he planted it 50 years ago, it was only a thin little stick. He had very mixed feelings about cutting it down, but now it's causing some problems with his patio & stuff, so he decided to have it removed. Bye bye, Old Oak.
I wish humans made sure their trees have enough space to grow as they should - and not be in the way of something else- before they plant them. It made mom very sad to see this beautiful tree cut down too. Of course, sometimes it needs to be done. My bipeds had a smaller tree cut down that had been planted directly under the electrical wires of 2 houses -- But then they planted our little Hoopsi where it can get to be 40 , 50, or even 60 feet tall without creating a problem. We hope it gets to be a big beautiful spruce and live a long long long life.
I wonder what I'll see outside my window today?
