Cannot really believe that this tree was taken down. Humans are so STUPID, aren’t we? I do know some of the back story, but it still seems to me that the tree could have been spared. The guy with the side sewer system, come on, everyone who wanted to save the tree should have pitched in to pay to have the side sewer moved! The city could have designated the tree and then have been available for funding of some sort.
I know. Coulda, shoulda, woulda. And a magnificient tree is no more. Stupid, ignorant humanity as prevailed. Again.
So, ok. Who gets the wood?

Would love to have a slice of the trunk to make a coffee table (OR LARGER WITH) DID IT ALL GO TO THE RECYCLING CENTER ALREADY?

The photographer did a great job of illustrating the giant tree take down.
Sometimes trees get too big for residential areas and they can be very dangerous and destructive. I’m sure the wood went to good use.

what a beautiful tree! what a shame.
how much was removal costs?
did owner get any money?
to bad some of the lumber wasn’t
cut into boards for use on the
owners house/fence or some non-profit
project ie boys/girls club etc.
is the tree stump going to be removed?
wonder if buggs love this species of tree
(tree stump) like they do fir etc.?
just a darn shame if somthing prductive
doesn’t come from this tree.
