Sure shows how all the holding power is behind the new wood that compartmentalizes over the lag bolt. you can even see a gap on both sides of the bolt in the heartwood.

Re: Whats the strangest thing you have found in a

While removing an old silver maple years ago, we found the carcass of a dog in a branch union cavity. The branch union was about 10-12 feet up and the hollow about 3-4 feet deep. The dog was either an Irish setter or long haired yellow lab. So, we figured the dog was chasing a squirrel or racoon and fell into the hollow at the union. It was about a 56" DBH tree.
I share this story whenever someone says they've never found cat skeletons in trees...no...but at least one dog!

Nice to see life back in a great old thread

I've found a wonderful career in the trees

My steel toe boots only need to last a few more weeks. I've been gluing them back together for a while. I was going to throw them in the trash at the end of my last day of
Work. Now, after reading Scott Baker's idea about leaving them in a tree I have better ideas! Screwed to antree with the toes up might make an inviting nest hole
