6 - Collapse

Will this 49 year old Arizona ash fall on me.. ??

It looms.

It’s looking weak in places..

Black ...

beneath the bifurcations..

There are two right next to each other,

Same age.

Both trees are


dead on the inside…

Despite their external greenery,

They will likely fall soon..

9 years overdue..

# Arizona Ash trees

# have life expectancy

# of 40 years

Long overdue..

Kind of like a certain rat race.


End is overdue..

Will it fall and kill us??

Will we get out of our own way in time??

Will we cut it down

and go back to living sensibly

in time?
