That’s a nice, strong dominant leader your neighbor’s got going there.I said:
I just consulted the Magic 8-Ball (arborist’s edition) and it said, “Split crotch unlikely.”
And that’s a fine prognosis!
Actually, it breaks up into three parts just above the top of what you see in the photo. I've often looked at that spot and thought: 1. You could sit there, 2. It would be scary. 3. Even if I wanted to sit there, it would be hard to get there. 4. No matter how long I live and how many times I look at that spot, I will never sit there.Chip Ahoy responds: "Alternate reality. Ann in a tree."

If you truly wanted to sit there that badly, you could find a way to sit there.Hey, I said wish fulfilled. Yeah, maybe I could find a way to have myself hoisted up there -- about 4 stories high -- and maybe I can be overcome with vertigo and tumble out and you could have my lifeless body transmogrified into a pile of white grit which you get somebody to pile up there in the tree-crotch for the squirrels to rake their claws through. But as I said: wish fulfilled.
