Huge Tree Stump - Our House - Sept. 13, 2015

(from the Lorax Speaks For The Trees department)

Hi everyone,

We had a maple tree fall in our back yard during a huge storm a couple of weeks ago.  Luckily - it fell between our lot and our neighbors' lots, and didn't take out our house.  This was especially lucky, because we were on vacation in North Carolina, and didn't get home until a few days later.

This morning, the arborist came by to remove the tree trunk, but they couldn't take it all. Here's a picture of the stump next to Dana for scale:

Here's some close ups of the inner rings and colors:

The top of the trunk section was interesting as well:

Here's the lovely Dana, again providing some scale:

UPDATE:  A few days later, the arborists returned and carted off the trunks.
