Tall Pine Split

Composite of four photographs showing views of pine tree trunks broken and sawed in the snow surrounded by scattered pine branches and pine needles in the snow.

Location: Brackett Field Park, 2728 South 39th Avenue

Winds gusting up to 50 mph with this April snowstorm snapped a tall pine in half in the northeast corner of the park. I counted some 28 rings on this split off the tree trunk. Surrounding pines along with half of this one, for now, still stand tall.
