The death of a tree

On my way to work this morning, I was driving South on Wood, and the very capable city street crew was hard at it, taking down one of the wonderful old oaks in Wilson Park.  Friday a massive limb fell.  Fortunately nobody was hurt.  The downed limb was hollow, and now revealed an unhealthy tree.  One that was risking the community.  Although it's sad to see this old friend go, it has served us well, and is time.

Is this friend heading for the landfill, or could there possibly be more service in it's future?  Stay tuned.
