This is a tangled and twisted reminder that all of the clean up work from Hurricane Irene is not completed yet here in Connecticut. This tree looks like it was pulled like a weed out of the garden….roots and all….and then tossed aside to wilt and die. Maybe this is Medusa’s head with snakes growing from all sides? Little by little, trees like this are getting cleared away in our community. In time, the effects of the hurricane will be just a distant memory. What does this mass of tree roots look like to you?
