An Old Friend Falls Down

Our first fall snow storm broke down many trees in the Denver area. 

One of them was one of our old apple trees in our back yard.
I  had been fighting fire blight on this tree for years, and eventually it had taken its toll. 

 A lot of jars of Joanne's yummy apple butter came from this tree.   It is sad to see it go.

  1. Oh darn. I really hate to lose a tree. Can you save and dry apple wood for a future project, or is it all rotten?
