Dear 100 Hour Board,
As I was walking to the Testing Center, I noticed that between the Brimhall building and the JSB there is a tree by the bike racks. The tree in question has a metal wire that was attached to one of the branches at one end, and was dangling a sawed off branch on the other end.
Any ideas for the purpose of this coniferous conundrum?

For those who are unaware of this mysterious branch I venture yonder to the land between the Brimhall and JSB to provide some photographic evidence.
(Sorry it's sideways, formatting pictures on the board is hard sometimes)
A peculiar piece of plantage indeed. My theory is that the wire was attached to a branch to provide additional support and to prevent it from crashing down upon students in the event of the branch breaking. I think that the branch broke, and grounds crew found it would be a lot more convenient and nicer to the tree to just saw off the excess branch rather than yank the wire out from the trunk. Thus we are left with a miniature hanging log. Anyways, that's just my guess. If anyone knows the actual reasons for this feel free to drop a correction.
