    That old big oak is a amazing size now for being so old.
    I had a huge mesquite tree in Mingus near the old house that had to been over 200 years old.
    My youngest son cut it down to buy more drugs with, it must have taken him a while because it was over 5 ft thick & the main trunk 14 ft tall. When I realized it was gone I wanted to do bodily harm.

    With a portable band saw they have nowdays it could have been slab out & worth near 10,000 dollars on the market as bar tops or tables. And as it was, sold as firewood to buy more drugs. Those old trees are priceless, far to many are destroyed.
