  1. I did the October Mudder in central Texas. It was a beast. Wading through the crowds was the toughest obstacle. Each wave must've been 500 people.
  2. Another thanks for your continued comments. As a reminder, the thread title is what I do about the hole, not the tree. I'm not cutting the tree down. Thinning the canopy sounds like a good idea, I can manage that, and the tree could use a haircut anyway. We aren't going to be hiring someone--it's not in the budget.
  3. Thanks all for the comments and suggestions thus far. If it makes any difference, I removed the lower concrete piece today (came right out with one hand) and measured both upper and lower cavities to assess the decay. Both appear to extend approximately 3 feet/1 meter past the outside opening. Pictures attached below.
  4. We have recently moved in, and a large chunk of concrete has fallen out of the tree in our front yard (in Texas). A quick web search revealed that the concrete method was a bad idea in the first place, but this was probably done 20 years ago by the previous homeowner. There is still some concrete left. Should I leave it or remove it? What should I do with the remaining cavity? Thanks in advance for any ideas.
