Default Tree

This woody perennial was suffering root disease (note the dark heartwood). It uprooted and was leaning 20 resting-against the tree seen on the right in the pic. If it continue falling over the uppermost 20ft would reach and damage the house (roof, gutter, Windows).
So I cut the trunk at a angle, it would stick in the ground and walked its woody structure allowing the tree to remain upright while shortening its structure 40ft.

Very artistic. Nice combination of soft ground and a tree that didn't hang up and try to kill you!
