This is a magnificent 6-foot in diameter Cottonwood snag on Harry and Elizabeth's Redmond farm off of Avondale Court. The tree was left to die naturally in a marshy meadow and now provides rich habitat for birds and wildlife.
The city and some residents top unwanted trees to "manufacture" snags, but they don't look or function entirely like a true snag.
