Wasn’t the Alabama football team at the White House a couple of weeks ago?

This White House? That is really not something to brag about.

I seen much larger trees survive, and much smaller ones die, as a result of improper technique and especially, aftercare, or the lack of it.

Without close-up, careful inspection, it’s impossible to tell or even guess, IMO. But breaking-off so low to the ground usually indicates carpenter ants or a hollowed-out, weak main trunk. Again, a close-up inspection would give me a better perspective; without it, it’s not even a close guess.

No, honey locust is some of the hardest, highest BTU stuff around. Almost too hot, it’s beat mixed with other hardwoods. “Salt Cedar”?? Y’all ain’t from around here.. ;)
