Tree Stump Resembles Twin Towers
CEDAR RAPIDS, IA (CBS 2/FOX 28) -- A Cedar Rapids man has a unique memorial to the 9/11 attacks right in his own backyard.
Fred Wagenaar had a black walnut tree cut down in his yard back in 2002.
As the remaining part of the tree was pulled away from the stump, it left behind splinters of wood resembling the twin towers and the skyline of New York City.
Wagenaar says he recognized the familiar image shortly after the tree fell.
Wagenaar detached the piece of the stump to show off to whomever wants to see it.
