These trees have been here before. While Norwottuck is a big draw for me, so are these two trees. They have been here for years and will continue for more to come. But….they are declining as you can tell from the upper bare branches. And in yesterday’s post a part of the left tree trunk is noticeably decaying. Amherst recently started a program to plant 2000 trees around town. One of them can be seen here under the right hand tree although it just looks like a hanging branch presently. But one day it will replace that right hand tree when it needs to be removed. There is also one near the left hand tree for the same purpose. It will be sad when they reach their demise but many people are enjoying them now and will be able to do so for a while longer.
