Hollow Tree

This Hollow Tree stands in the Stanley Park, Vancouver. It's quite marvelous to look at and stand in. It measures 20 meters around. The city council for Vancouver voted unanimously to tear it down because it has become unsafe.   They chose to tear it down rather than spend 200K bracing it, attaching safety lines and hoping it wouldn’t fall and hurt someone.  A beautiful tree … gone.
