Picture of the Day - Dead Deodar

This 90-year-old Deodar Cedar is the oldest tree in the Atascadero Sunken Gardens. According to THIS article the City of Atascadero notes it is in decline and plans to fell it. Today, while I visited the Atascadero Farmers Market, it sure seemed the tree was more than merely in "decline", but rather entirely dead, as in kaput.

  1. I would suggest having a mobile sawmill turn this tree into lumber - then have new cabinetry and furniture built by a cabinetmaker for the city hall building and possibly even other city offices. Let's put that tree to good use.
