More Than A Little Tipsy


We have had rain and wind, so I checked the tipping pin oak. Ten days ago it was 5 inches off plumb in 2 feet. Today it is a little over 5 5/8" off plumb in 2 feet. This tree is between 85 and 90 feet tall, and 5/8"  here represents a bit over two feet of movement at the top. This tree's top is now 20 feet off center. What with the root rot and general decline, I am betting this tree is in the pond before Christmas. I hope we have a little warning and can set up a camera for the big event, but it will probably do it in the dead of night or while I am at work.

You're In! If it's in the pond by 8:45 AM on Nov 26, YOU WIN! We will mail the tails off any drowned squirrels or coons, or maybe something even better!

Thanks! It's pretty hard to drown a coon, so..... :)
