i'm sorry nancy,
I didn't see this yesterday         spent most of the day     watching them cut down that magnificent  ancient pecan tree    and mourning it's loss         it was the closest one to me  and along with the one my sister lost last year     left a significant gap in the tree line to my east   morning view

So glad to see you. Nellie.  I certainly understand you mourning the loss of a pecan tree. 
I'm so sorry - what a loss.

So sad to loose a tree.  Particularly a Pecan! I hope it was nothing that will cause loss of other trees that were near it.
As I said in a previous post there is nothing like a tree to make you realize your own mortality.  I keep wanting to plant a Ginkgo and they are so slow growing that I would never see it in full glory.  Then I say to myself if you had planted it 2 years ago when you first thought about it you would have seen 2 years of growth.

i'm pretty sure the drought is probably going to kill all of the pecans   5 yrs now
the cut limbs had visible holes up the center
these are very old, huge trees   it used to be a  grove 
the man in that house has just one lot   large house, in ground pool , patio and at least 3 sheds     around his 3 pecans      this is the 2nd one gone now he's not giving them a chance
