could you give a little bit background into treesitter? looks like an interesting story...
This was one of the last remaining large elm trees in Kansas. Borders bookstore bought the lot it was on and built a store. They wanted to cut it down to make a parking lot, and there was much local protest. They ended up leaving the tree, but pretty much paving right up to it on one side. Supposedly this isn't very good for the tree, and within a few years it was truely barely alive. Early one morning a tree cutting service was spotted taking the big branches off. This young woman got up into the tree as the workers took a break. She sat in the tree with a protest vigel at the base of the stump for a few weeks. I'll try to dig up some of my early photography of the big elm tree.
wow, that is an interesting story.. it would be great to see other pics for that! thanks!
