Ike: Death on Trees

I live in an area noted for pecan trees, the state tree of Texas. Sadly, pecan trees don't do well in high wind. At the end of my garage is a pecan tree that's probably over 100 years old. It's kind of gangly and is the home for 2 squirrel nests that I'd love to get rid of because squirrels are a constant nuisance for us. The tree is huge in height and girth though not excessively leafy nor is it well-branched.

The photo is of a tree near a roadside state park, an area full of native pecan trees. They and most of the pecans in this part of Texas suffered during the hurricane that hit Saturday.

Takeaway Truth

For every tree that dies, plant at least one and nurture it. I intend to do so.
