The Willow Tree: Aftermath

Here's what is left...

It would have been nice to have a large cross section of the tree to make a table, but the trunk was so massive that there had to be several cuts since Andy's crew didn't have a saw that would saw through the whole thing.
The tree grew around this chain that was for the tire swing...
...As well as over the chain this pulley was attached to that once held Adam's heavybag. The service that took away the rest of the tree wouldn't take these two pieces because of the metal embedded in the wood, since they send all the wood through a grinder (and the metal would ruin their grinding equipment).  So we still have these two pieces...for Adam to make a table out of perhaps?

The Willow Tree: Going...going... GONE

The branches are gone....only the trunk remains...

Our friend Andy cutting up what's left of the trunk.
Andy's son climbing up the massive stump...reminiscent of years ago when Adam used to climb the tree at that age.
There's so much sky now without the tree there.
