A Mighty Tree

There used to be a big tree in the park. The other day we had a storm come through and I noticed that there were some large (very very large) branches on the ground. Apparently, one of the branches (like a good portion of the tree) had broken off - and taken a branch from the neighboring tree with it.

I was surprised - when the clean up was all done that the town removed the tree. I'm guessing that enough of the tree had fallen to make the rest of it not seem safe anymore.

I was also surprised at what was a casualty of the fallen branches. When I saw the branches on the ground I didn't even realize that's where the bench was. Or had been.

Let's just say it's a good thing no one was sitting there at the time.
