This old Elm tree is on the Historical Record
for its great age (oldest elm in the state) and size;
towers above nearby buildings.
The sad thing is it
has developed a disease and may have to be
chopped down.

Aw, it makes me sad, but we all have to die some day, I suppose. Love this clever up-view. V

A beautiful shot of this old tree, Carol. A local tree near where I live had to be chopped down close to a landmark. I still miss seeing it now. V!!

Dying trees, very common problem here as well. Lots of pine trees dying and giant sequoia out back looks sickly in spots. Beetles I think have infested the pine trees, they get cut down then the wood chips get spread out in the community; DUH if they go beetle larvae in them just spreading them around to kill more trees.

A world wide problem...very sad to see any old tree lose it's life.
