Over the last 2 years the wonderful ice storms we had have all but destroyed the trees in our front yard. One we completely cut down to the ground and the other we kinda just left. We tried to cut it down but the wood was too hard for the chainsaw we had.
But that really didn't seem to matter to the trees. :)
The one cut to the gound looks more like a bush now and the shattered stump? Well, you can see how it is doing above. :)
