Create a wildlife habitat

From death springs new life. The old tree was past its prime, he could no longer withstand the rigors of hot sun and winter winds. In the end the only thing left was his huge stub of a trunk.

My lovely neighbor saw it, not as an eyesore that needed to be removed, but rather an opportunity to encourage new life. Today the old stump is home to butterflies, skinks and toads and is a beautiful addition to the landscape.
