Last week Sam found an amazing piece of the puzzle for the Madison Pine Allee--the remains of a Madison-era tree stump with roots still intact!  The tree was likely cut down around 1905-1907 and the stump left to rot.  In the process of cleaning out the area of the tap root (using our friend the shop-vac) Sam came across the resin-filled roots of the tree that still smelled of pine sap some 100 years after being cut down!  We will be wrapping up the excavations over the next week.
