TIMBER!!! The End of The Story

July 15, 2013

I was so glad the branch was taken away after it fell, though the question continued as to what about the other that leans.  Last Monday I was leaving to see my chiropractor and there were two trucks out on the road with three guys.  I though they were reading meters, then I saw the were City of Burien trucks.  I didn’t wait around to see what they were doing.  When I came back around noon, this is what I saw:

Would you believe there is no more tree?

The whole tree was cut, so there is a hole of light for the street.

It looks as if they cut it in slices.

It seems to have been spread over  quite a span of street.

I find it interesting to see how the tree had grown in 3 sections.

Not sure the last time the sun saw this spot after the Madrona tree started growing.

Some of the slices are thin (relatively) and others are thick.

With all the pieces more in the bushes, it is surprising to see some by the side of the road.

I am really astounded at how big that tree really was.

Glad I wasn’t around when all of this was happening.

This is a small section that shows the three  branches formed.

I love the shapes of the sections (now that the tree is down).

Makes me wonder what made it grow like this.  Now we don’t have to wonder if the other branch hanging over the street will come down or would it be when.  Someone can have some firewood and we can all relax.  Seems an appropriate ending for our forest adventure.
