One in Adelphi, Maryland, one in Wildwood, Florida, one at the US National Arboretum with a grandfatherly interest in many more around the DC area (unless noted, pictures are taken the day of post)

You always hope the stump will fall back into the hole....and it did this time!
which is good because we can cut it off at ground level and grind the roots. Then we'll just start over and pretend this magnificent Spanish Oak never existed. It sounds so heartless. The older I get though, the more I understand, viscerally, that change is a part of gardening. We can respect the dead and still relish the opportunity.
