Just checked on my Tree today. It seems to have gotten shorter and is still not completely flattened. It has become a bug sanctuary, well it has been for over 3 years now. You can see the spider web on the inside. Bugs in it and underneath. I shared with my friends (who own the yard it is in) that the end is near. I may be helping my Tree along on its final steps. Give it completely over to the bugs in a way.
