The tree that blew over next to the Contemplation Pool stood fine and grew for many years with no problems. During that time there were, as the weather goes, many times of high winds. The Contemplation Pool builders excavated a whole lot of earth, that anchored the many cut roots on the side the tree fell away from. I don't think there is any doubt that the trees grip was weakened because of this, and therefore succumbed to strong winds pushing on it from that side. I like the Contemplation Pool, and I do not think that the builders envisioned that they were compromising to that extent the grip of that tree on the granite. A long time DCHS regular was there yesterday cutting off some of the upper branches, he thinks the tree may continue to grow and he figures the removed branches will give the trunk and rest of the tree a better chance of growing out of what is left. Personally now I think its an ugly eyesore and it would look much better if the whole thing was removed, then perhaps someone might find a good spot to plant another tree, out of the way of where people would trample it. The man who was cutting the trees did create a sand path from where the tree is towards the PCT, in a marshy area that was real muddy, a nice improvement for traversing that spot smiling smiley
