Big Tipper

We ought to start a tree tipping pool and see if we can raise the money to pull this big boy out of the pond when it takes its dive. We have been watching it for many years after noticing that muskrat activity had undermined the south side of the root system.

It's big alright. The roots had mushrooms growing on them after rains this year, and the ground is kicking up on the north side.

In 2010 it was off by 2 3/4" in two feet. In recent weeks it has changed to 5" The change is very noticeable from the back porch, and we won't be surprised when it goes. I hope the squirrels survive the drop.
