storm. BIG STORM. crazy, crazy wind. how crazy?
crazy enough to take down 50 foot trees (can you spy the buried picnic table?)
|what's that thing sticking up? oh that's the crabapple that went down with the pine. ouch, i didn't want that one pruned out|
|uh, lady, why is there a pine tree growing in your maple?|
sadly, not permanent, and once we cut it up there will be a lot less privacy from the road
So, that is 2 trees down, blown west to east. Here is tree #3. This one was a welcome pruning as it was dead. This tree has blown from south to north, did I mention crazy wind?
Then there is this pathetic specimen. Sure, it looked healthy enough, but no roots! It is tree #4, making our house surrounded on three sides by downed trees. Clearly I should just be happy that our house did not blow away.
Thankfully, my parents were planning a weekend visit and brought their chainsaw along. Pakka is da man!
for example, this makes me feel better.
