Our Tipping Pin Oak
We have been watching our big pin oak tip with great consternation, because it is going in the pond, and there is no pulling it back. It will become a "project" and there is no way to fight it. Back in November 2015 the lean was 5 5/8" in 2 feet.
The tree is 90 feet tall, so 7" in two feet represents 315" off center at the top. I had predicted that this tree would be in the pond by Christmas 2015, so I am not very good at predictions, but there is no doubt that this tree is going down. It will be a project.
