This Virginia Pine rotted out at the base and fell into the treetops next to it. It seems dead/rotted all the way through. I have let it be for several months but it has not fallen on it's own. If I release the base I am not sure if it will fall. I might try to get a rope into the top and pull on it first before I try to cut through the base. They say a tree like this can 'barberpole' and violently split/delaminate but I'm pretty sure this one is dead all the way thru. I wanna get it split and stacked up for a future season.
