Dead tree cut near Independence Spire

ROSEWOOD – An American company removed most of a dead Douglas fir next to Überstadt’s Independence Spire early this evening. The tree died well over a year ago for unknown reasons, and the Baron Ballinger arranged its disposal.

The fir was not very old, being about a foot in diameter. A stump several feet high was left standing at the request of the environment ministry. Standing deadwood in is known to benefit wildlife in traditionally wooded areas, such as the Puget Sound basin.

Leftover pieces of log will either be exported or used in Überstadt for fuel or building material.
