    If the wood from the tree is good wood, take it to a custom woodworker and have him make you a unique table or something.

    Here is a little tree starring commercial that should choke you up a little at the moment- if you have a soul that is. I was a wreck the first time I saw it.

    my grandparents had a Century Plant when I was a kid in the backyard

    had to cut it once the main stalk or whatnot got to like 75"+ in the air and started leaning haha

    Yeah some trees they get brittle when they are really old or lean towards the house specially during the rainy seasons because the ground gets water logged.

    I left the stumps so there is a possibility it might grow back and will just trim it like try to bonzai it but it may not grow back at all.

    when my parents bought our childhood home, there were 2 small fir trees about 15ft from the house. 5 years ago the trees were cut down because of potential hazards during wind storms. i didn't fully understand why my mom was so sad about having to cut them down until read through these posts. thank you

    Would be cool to take a picture with it posing like you just took down some big game animal.

    If you take a cutting from the tree and propagate it, it will grow into an exact clone of the mother tree. That is if you have room for one somewhere else.

    Just a suggestion.

    I had a century plant as well, was amazing to watch it do it's thing. One day just the base plant, then suddenly that stalk grew extremely fast and shot up to around 50 feet in no time. I wonder if Jack and the Beanstalk was inspired by the century plant

    The best thing you can do in this life is realize that nothing matters, and be ok with it.
