Apple Tree

My wife and I planted this apple tree in the front yard of our Thurber St. house. We planted it in 1999, to replace the huge pine tree that we lost in the 1998 Labor Day tornado/derecho. We had only lived in the house for 3 weeks before the storm, so the plantings that next spring were really the first touches we put on our house–other than the fence we put in for the dogs the first week we moved in.

Unfortunately, two recent severe thunderstorms damaged the tree beyond survival–and we were forced to take it down. My wife and brother-in-law were the brains of the operation–I pulled camera duty and lugged fallen branches to the curb.
