This is some of the damage.
The main trunk, laid on its side, split.
Here's the base of the main trunk - split pretty badly. If you blow the pic up, you can see a lot of bird damage, too. The woodpeckers and sap suckers must really love this tree.
Here's a close up of some of those bird holes. I think they look pretty cool.
We'll try to salvage part of the tree. It's a good bearer - thornless, too - and I don't want to lose it.
