 "Looking behind the tree".


The Burl Tree and the old building floor from road side. 
The location from the road side is deceiving -
the burl tree grows in the side of a drainage ditch 6 feet below.
The burl tree is approximately 44.6" DBH from road side.
Height from Ground level to bottom of the fork is about 11 feet.


 Drainage ditch runs behind tree and under Ace Hardware storage lot


Location of burl tree in relation to drainage ditch.  From ground level down to ditch is about 6 feet.

Mark Lindquist Investigates back side of burl tree


Steve Cross measuring burl tree on back (ditch side) - (about 50").  The tree grows up about 4 feet to
old shop floor level.  The roots apparently extend below, about another 2 feet to ditch.

Several smaller trees have grown up beside the burl tree - must be removed at time of limbing


Concrete chucks and bricks throughout root system at base
