There's a small tree uprooted near our house. It's since been cut for logs. The 'plate' of roots is still clearly visible, but it's nowhere near the size of this!

I wonder why such a superb tree has been uprooted.

Fabulous pictures of a sad story.

I am surprised the root system is so restricted. I would think the roots would extend out for twenty or thirty or more feet all around. Instead it looks to be less than 6 or 8 feet. It is a reminder that nothing stands up forever.

what a shame that it toppled over (and luckily nobody was hurt?). One that big fell over a couple years ago: it is way across the beaver meadows. It is huge and black and people stop because they think it is a moose.
