Ok I went back and looked at the second tree and I discovered its also dead. I thought it was alive but was wrong. Gazing into my bourbon and coke last night and giving it some thought, I have decided I might have come up with an answer. I know there is a pair of Pileated Woodpeckers living on my place somewhere. I see them from time to time and hear them fairly often. Anyone thats not familar with them, think Woody Woodpecker. They're big birds about the same size as Crows. I think they are the ones that chipped up the dead trees looking for insects or worms. Thats my story and I'm sticking to it.

"Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience." C.S. Lewis
