Hickory Heartwood

Due to the strength of their heartwood, whether years dead through the processes of Nature or after being attacked only minutes ago with chain saws, big hickories, with the bases of their trunks severely undercut, still tend to remain standing, long after other trees of the same size, even their equally stout and stately neighbors, the oaks, would have fallen.

Nice to see you back. And I always thought you had a strong heart and would outlast most of your generation.

Hi, Rook! I'm glad to see that you're still going strong. I check in on what you're doing now and then, even though I keep going through a series of quiet times that I can't seem to avoid.
