Some day some one is going to try to mill this. It will look like an awesome burl.

It is amazing what trees will grow around and engulf, thus the reason sawyers don’t want anything to do with trees from your yard! There is a guy here in the DFW area with a bicycle engulfed by a tree. Thanks.

Actually that is not burl, it is just the tree growing around the poles.
Burl is tree limbs not growing out but growing within itsself. Kind of like an ingrown hair

If someone cut the pipes now, pulled them out, and let the tree keep growing it would make a very impressive grain pattern in the lumber. Last Winter, I found a tree on the edge of a golf course with a section of logging chain inside a crotch. It was cut by a tree service and they destroyed a chainsaw chain finding it…

This birch cam out of my yard. I passed on milling it because I thought it might have some hardware. I think my bandsaw blade would have been finished.

Yikes Don, this kind of stuff is spooky. Yeah that would have finished off a bandsaw blade for sure.

I come from the farm where they are notorious for nailing fence wire to trees. Now I walk through there and just shake my head.

We can all appreciate Mother Nature and find inspiration within … and sometimes through Human Stupidity too!
But a combination of both can sometimes boggle the mind. Point in case, the tree wrapped fence!

However … in the particular case of GrampaLen’s message given … the combination of Human Love and Mother Nature grabs hold to inspire the mind and heart forever.
