A Majestic Pine Tree Comes Down
I live in a small college town in the student ghetto. My home is almost one hundred years old and the town was built up around it. This is the view from my beautiful bay window--a family home. If you look carefully, you can see a noble old pine tree that I have admired for decades is being cut down. It died last year in the unrelenting drought and incredible freeze along with two willows on my own property.
I should have picked up the green litter on the sidewalk before I took this picture. All the litter in town it seems like ends up in my yard.
Goodbye, faithful friend. God, how you will be missed.
This is Mr. Ortiz. He cut down this tree all by himself. Not really. His son in law, the homeowner, helped. Thanks for posing for me while you were working, guys.
