100 Foot Oak Tree Dies

 Early in the spring, we noticed a 100 foot tall Oak tree wasn't leafing out as expected.  It only got leaves on about half of it's branches.  Finally two weeks ago, all the leaves died and we had to remove the tree as it could hit the house if it fell.  A crew of 6 men took 4 hours to cut the tree limb by limb from 100 feet to a short stump that is 4 feet in diameter.  They chipped up what they could and hauled away the rest.  Quite an impressive operation but we now have a big hole in our tree line.
