We had another tree cut down in our yard yesterday and this stump is all that remains. It was an old pine that died and was infested with pine beetles. It was also dangerously close to our house, so we finally bit the bullet and paid to have it cut down.
I asked my husband to take pictures, but by the time he was up and ready the tree was already gone! At least the workers were quick and efficient. It's sort of sad to see a tree go though. I hope no birds were nesting in it - the woodpeckers especially like to make their homes in those tall, skinny pines.
