Skeletal reminders....

dead trees


This large and lovely tract of land in Northwest Houston offers sad reminders of the drought of last summer.

 

Trees are a large part of the appeal for the area.  They offer feelings of serenity and often provide enough shade to make temperatures more temperate.

 

The dead tree fringe is beautiful in its own way.

 

Since they do not threaten to fall on any structures or roadways,  they may be allowed to stay right where they are.

 

They do not offer shade or the ability to clean up the air as to the live trees.  They do however provide numerous housing opportunities for birds who need places to nest.

 

With the numerous woodpeckers in this area, the skeletal remains of these trees may represent a major development .

Hi R & J, that's our real estate motto. Everyone has to live somewhere, right? Even the woodpeckers. On the serious side, I hope the drought is over for you now.

I had a tree die this last year - was so sad!  It was only 2 years old.  When I was on an extended vacation I guess my gardener didn't water it enough in the heat!

Major development indeed. I'm sure the woodpeckers will enjoy these dying trees. Everything has it's purpose.

Mother nature is not always easy on us, but we are not always easy on her either.  Sorry for the area lose.

We have been hit hard too here in The Woodlands.  This week with all of the horrific storms, they are coming down by the droves.

How sad to see the trees succumb to the record drought you endured. We one one a few years back and the city of Atlanta almost ran out of water!

That's an interesting way to look at a dead tree. Had never thought of them quite that way.

Hi guys,

Its very true that many animals can use a dead tree, but the potential for harm is great. I have had to remove most of the dead trees from our land. Its rare someone could get hurt, but during hunting season with all the realatives out and about its better to be safe and not sorry. They are called 'widow makers' for a reason. If you drop them and let them lay the animals can still use them and they wont potentially hurt anyone.
