What is wrong with this photo? The long, vine wrapped thing is a dead oak tree. It fell, pulling up the root ball. It fell partially in my neighbor’s yard and knocked part of his power out for a short while. The biggest problem being that this tree has been dead for 4 years. Some one actually offered us $200 for the wood 4 years ago. But my husband (pack rat) refused to part with it. So it stood, a sad, rotting beacon to the world, until yesterday. So long dead tree. So long.
