Bad tree year

There is another tree in the river by the cemetery. This one is a recent fall, but like the one further downstream, it is backing up water. With all the trees damaged during the winter, and now trees dropping in the spring, this has been a bad year for trees.
When the water goes down, maybe we will be able to walk across it. Or might someone actually remove this one?

As the picture shows, we had a lot of rain Sunday, and the river is at 13 feet, above flood stage, which is 12 feet. It may be setting a record today and/or tomorrow. And if we get the additional rain forecast tomorrow, it may rise even higher.
