So we were driving poles into the ground to get an idea where the hybrid straw bale pole barn building was to be located, however it would have placed the home within 10 feet of this really cool OLD oak tree.  The problem was the middle of the tree had become rotten and any major winds could eventually take it down.  As a matter of fact in the camping park we are staying in temporarily we had at least 100 mile an hour winds or straight line winds come out of nowhere and took down dozens of trees later in the week.  Here is a video of our decision to take the tree down.  This is day 2 of the tree extraction / and fall.
