Raising the trees...
Plans have yet to be filed to demolish this incredibly tiny shell of a house with its enormous plantation style front yard. A thousand freeze / thaw cycles could not have been kind to this old guy. A gentle shove might be all it takes to knock him to the ground.
He looks naked without his protective leafy overcoat. Don't worry. We are expecting a heavy blanket of snow today.
