This amazing white pine has been a beauty in our lives since purchasing the property twenty years ago. From the lake we could always find our way home because it was one of the tallest trees on the north shore. Unfortunately the March storm took its toll. Huge limbs came down onto our roof, deck, yard and the tree was leaning dangerously over the house.
A kayak ride out on the water afforded this shot just before the tree was topped. We have left the stump and plan to make a bench from it. Sad day for our favorite tree!
