The property we live on was settled in 1840. I don’t know when this Maple Tree, whose shadow shows here on the house was planted, but it has been here a while. It is 82″ in circumference and about 55′ tall.
Next week, this giant will come down.
It is sick and weak. During the last big storm, a very large branch came down that almost took out more than one of the cars. If it comes down in another direction, it will take down a lovely side porch as well as damage the house and roof.
We don’t have a choice. It has to come down. But, I’m definitely going to miss the old guy.
For many other interpretations of shadowed check here.
