Two years ago we were notified that some trees were going to cut down because of concerns with the power lines.
The crew arrived Thursday morning (yes we got a touch of snow the night before) mother nature pranking us once again! They trimmed up the smaller branches.
For some reason they pulled off the job, tidied up the yard and left early that afternoon.
They came back this morning and got back to business. I took pictures of the workers like the paparazzi
from a distance.
The day before I let them know I had a little honeysuckle bush right next to it and I'd appreciate it if they didn't demolish it. He accommodated me by making sure the wood fell to the opposite site.
Trimming off lower branches before he parked the bucket and came down.
Starting to make the final cuts
There she goes!
I clicked away and caught it mid-air.
When it dropped the earth shook! It's exciting to witness and feel the impact and it makes you realize just how much weight there is in a tree. I'm sure glad they know what they are doing because that fell in line with to the corner of the living room!
We did note last year that it barely had leaves on it so it was on it's way out but it's very sad to see such a big tree have to be taken down (just glad I didn't have to pay for it).
You can just barely make out the honeysuckle next to the stump. Doesn't look like much now but once things green up it will be pretty again!
This is the honeysuckle bush I asked them to be careful of. I'm grateful I was here to be able to ask them because I'm sure with it's close proximity it would have been a goner.
I darn near killed this honeysuckle once before by transplanting it at the wrong time. It took two years for it to start making a comeback but now it's recovered nicely and I hated to think I'd loose it.
They rolled the pieces over by the woods. A friend of ours will be coming by to take the wood away since he uses it to heat his home.
Quietly at peace- only the sawdust of it's shadow remains….
Wishing you all a great weekend.
