Weakened by drought over the last few years this tree in my yard was finally destroyed. It was also infested by a large number of bees. Lack of adequate rains had weakened the main trunk severely and left some cracks and crevices that hadn't healed properly.. As a result, some bees decided to make a home in this tree. Their home was entirely exposed after the tree fell. The bees covered a large area inside the tree. Not quite sure if the presence of the bees had made the condition of the tree worse. This very old tree is now completely damaged and is now basically firewood.
It seems that even the smallest of nature’s creatures can be affected when a mighty giant falls.
Staying above the water line!
