Poor tree

Things aren’t going well for our poor oak tree. Bugs have moved in and seem to be winning the war. Seems like it needs to be cut down … ? The last photo gives an idea of how close Mr. Oak is to the cabin.

I guess the good news is I’ll have firewood for years to come. Or maybe I could have the trunk sawed into boards … ?

    Too bad about the tree. Maybe a good arborist could do something? That said, depending on what is in there (Emerald Ash Borer), you might need to burn it right away. Good luck!

    1. Thanks for the thoughts! I do know that the tree is an oak. The arborist wants $65 to come out to look at it … and since the damage looks pretty bad to me, I’m inclined to put that toward the (not insignificant) cost of having the tree cut down.
