Rest in Pieces

It is with a heavy heart that we announce the end of one of our last two centenarian pecan trees. We have lost two out of three this year. This was the tree we got married under only one and a half years ago. You can see the bracket fungus all up and down the side in this photo. It attacks the heart wood and once you see it in this stage, it is pretty much too late to save the tree. This one was such a giant, that we made the decision to take it down before it fell. Rest in pieces you ol’ beauty.

We counted the rings and it looks like the tree’s first year was 1874.

Here are a few interesting things that happened the year the tree was born:
