Nicely done.

From Wikipedia:
As of 1993, The Senator was estimated to be 3,400 - 3,600 years old, the 5th oldest tree in the world

On Tuesday, February 28, 2012, The Division of Forestry said they arrested 26 year old Sara Barnes in relation to the fire of The Senator. Barnes said she regularly went to the tree site to do drugs and lit a fire that night so that she could see, but that it got out of control. Officials said that they found images of the fire being started on Barnes' laptop and on her cellphone. When an arrest warrant was served at her home she was also charged with possession of methamphetamine.



Sigh.

Suffice it to say, this is why we can't have nice things.

There's gotta be a "senator" and "wood" joke in there somewhere, but I'm haven't been able to come up with it.

I know this probably won't be something that most people will get but that was really an awesome tree, in every sense of the word. Despite being freakin' huge and older than almost anything else on the planet, it just looked really cool.

The idiot meth head who burnt it down is a real POS. She could have called 911 at any time in the 7 hours it was burning before being discovered, and didn't bother.   I tracked her down on FB, and she had pictures of drugs on her page while on bail! I mean how stupid can you get? I called the State Attorney, and found out they had already revoked her bail for fraud or something else, also while out on bail. Really, I hope they throw away the key.
