Our neighborhood has a few HUGE oak trees. They’re called “heritage” oaks and they’ve been around for a couple hundred years. Unfortunately, they sometimes drop limbs (which can be the size of a large tree) and need to be taken down. This gigantic oak split a huge limb off the bottom and crashed into the owner’s garage and car. Today, a crew was taking the tree down.
This photo gives you a sense of how big the tree was. They’ve already trimmed about 80 percent of the tree.
Can you see the tree guy about half way up on the left? He looks tiny.
See him now?
Mom estimates this tree is about 100 feet tall (30 meters). If I were an outdoor kitty, I think I’d be brave enough to climb up, but I wouldn’t want to look down. And I think I’d need to be rescued. Would you be brave enough to climb it?
