Thursday Photo Challenge

The theme for this challenge is Green, and the only thing we have around here right now that is green are the pine trees. This tree is right outside my back door. It used to be a very large, very full tree.

When we got the big ice storm that closed everything down and killed power to most of this area, this tree was so weighted down with ice that it caught the power lines. A lot of the branches broke because of the weight of the ice, but it was the city that did most of the damage when they chopped it to get it off of the lines.

They took way more off of it than was necessary and now this is what I see whenever I open the back door. Poor tree!
