This tree has a story. Apparently, in its previous life it was a human being. It was a man who asked to borrow money from his father. When the father refused, the son was so angry that he took an axe and killed him.
As a way to exhaust the mental reaction created by this axe-murder, the son was reborn as a tree with a cleave down its middle.
It has been around as a tree for several decades now. The monkeys seem to enjoy its company.
