1. It is amazing how they just don't give up easily.

Life is precious to trees as well as other living things. I would think that it should be taken down, but I would have a hard time doing it myself...it wants to live.

3. Yes,and they are amazing.

My neighbor, the owner, said reluctantly last week he thinks he'll take it down, so we discussed 'replacing' it with 2 crape myrtle, one in this spot, and the other at the eastern end of the vine, date or fig?

2. I bet it has experienced a few lightning strikes in its time.
