This hickory has always been one of my favorite trees on our place.
I loved the way it (picturesquely, romantically) leaned over the path, and defended it from my husband, who has long wanted to cut it down.
But now there's a problem. How can you defend a tree that insists on behaving in this manner?
Hubby says it must go. We need to be able to drive under there, and neither pickups nor tractors can Limbo. Plus, if this decline continues, a fence will be destroyed.
I'll still be sad to see it go.
(Note the crazy husband in the tree.)
