Big Cherry Tree

I hated to see this beautiful big cherry tree come to the end of it's life.  It has become a hazard to the utility lines and, according to local arborist Joe McPhail, must come down.  If there is any good news here, it's that, it's looking like this big cherry tree may have a productive second life as furniture. 

Update;  The city did remove cut down this beautiful tree, and it is presently in flitch sawn form, air drying awaiting it's next journey.
