June 12, 2014 by grammapenny Old man willow Well the old guy finally came down today… its always hard to watch a part of the landscape disappear, but the tree was rotted out and was in danger of falling on someone or something.

great pictures Penny!!!! and sad…always sad when a tree comes down!!!!!!!
Ooh, Penny, was he ill? So sad to lose a tree, they’re family, almost. How has the light changed?
The tree was rotted out and had severe carpenter ant damage. We kept it as long as we felt it was safe. There is a photo back in the archives of the tree from the side which showed some of the rot.
Penny, I am sad to see the tree come down! This has always been one of my favorite sights when walking Harry. Hopefully you will plant something that will have as long a life as Old Man Willow. Mimi
