It’s too bad someone in a large truck didn’t mow down this tree when it was still a sapling. The seed took hold outside of a bend in a road that otherwise runs straight for a half a mile or so.
This is exactly where you wind up if you are driving too fast for conditions.
Long ago, the tree reached the state of “immovable object”.
It bears the scars of multiple impacts.
Of course, it’s not the tree that causes the accidents, but still I wonder if it should not be taken down before it kills again.
I am reminded of Shel Silverstein’s classic story about the tree who gave its own life for the shelter and comfort of a boy growing into a man. Trees certainly provide abundantly for us. And occasionally, trees take someone away.
