I killed a great tree yesterday. A wide and towering Oak. And, it was an impulsive move on my part. My neighbor’s tree service offered me a deal and I took it. I even paid $3k to have it destroyed It had an injury and it dripped sap continuously. Eventually the tree, which hovered over my roof would start to lose limbs. So I justified it. But I feel sad and guilty. The empty, bright space that fills the formerly dark, mighty stripe shouts at me. My impulsiveness makes me feel callused. I should have hugged it, said good bye.
