Believe it or not, this is still alive.
It blazed another trail and re-rooted itself. That’s the new trunk in the middle!
The sign reads ”
Walking Crabapple Tree planted in 1911, this showy crabapple (Malus floribunda) has lost most of its branches, except for one that has rooted into the ground. Eventually the old trunk and its connection to the living branch will decay and with luck the new tree that’s forming now will flourish on its own.”
Now, that’s amazing!
