Today is the big day...a sad day.
Although I'm really not looking forward to this, I know that it's the right thing to do. I knew it was inevitable as I examined the fallen bark over the year. Each and every piece was filled with tiny holes as if some parasite had drilled and chiseled it's way right to the heart of this magnificent thing of beauty.
As the Pres told me, "It's better to get it removed before it can seriously damage the house."
The massive white pine is being taken down today.
