This is the walnut tree that was about halfway down the hill from Holcomb Road and has now been removed from Boynton Drive.
For some time now I have been deeply concerned about the possibility of this huge tree falling into the Boynton Drive traffic and possibly killing someone.
Due to the fact that at least one elderly man in the Catoosa area was killed by a fallen tree as he and his wife had stopped at the end of Baggett Road at Poplar Springs Road, I’ve wanted to say something about, but I just decided to pray about it.
Well, it is now gone and it will not hurt anyone.
A great big thank you goes to all who were responsible for it’s removal.
