The Tenuous Tree

Pictured Rocks Lakeshore Tenuous Tree
The Crooked Crabapple Tree featured in a previous post  is misshapen from coping with early adversity, but fundamentally healthy and growing fine . The Tenuous Tree below, at the  Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore, looks perfectly fine, but it is hanging onto life by its fingernails...or, rather, by only two roots.  They almost certainly have gotten bigger as the demands placed on them increased because soil, rock and other roots were pummeled away by the waves.  But the least disruption to these lifelines will spell the end for this glorious tree.

I would love to receive photographs of other trees coping.

Stump Grinding Company was very professional and courteous. He protected near-by structures from flying debris by erecting boards around the work area. His price was very competitive compared with the other three bids and even took out a lemon bush adjacent to a stump at no extra charge. Highly recommended http://stumpgrinderpros.com.

This is a good idea for people who actually have some questions or inquiries about this topic. I am so excited to see the discussions that will be made on this thread regarding taxes. I have to say that this kind of topic should really be discussed thoroughly to people who finds it helpful so that there won't write me an assignment be no confusions anymore.
