|I am kitty and my butt approves of this tree stump.|
The reason that it had to be cut down was that the tree had caught the thousand cankers disease (fungus) that is expected to kill off all the black walnut trees here in Colorado within five years.
|Those brown leaves showing up is a sign that your tree is diseased.|
I am not happy about this disease. This tree was a nice tree, and fairly old (I am guessing that it was planted at the time this area was developed, so it was 60 to 70 years old I think).
|The team work was amazing.|
The sad part is that I still have another black walnut tree...and I like it. As I said, I am not happy about the disease.
|My other black walnut tree.|
So now, I have a rahter large tree stump in the front of my yard. My wife thinks that she is going to use it to sit on while gardening, but I think that one of the cats has already claimed it.
|It was a fairly large tree as you can see from this photo.|
