I thought all the trees that might be a problem,
like falling on my cottage
had been trimmed or cut down.
I have been looking at this tree every since
building and 3 years has gone by so quickly.
Tree had a large section very close to this home.
and with winter arriving and possible ice on the
limbs or high winds a decision was made.
A sigh of relief it is done and pleased that just
a section of this tree was removed and not the
whole tree cut down.
Also the other evening noticed large sections of bark in my drive
and after some inspection noticed
the upper part of the tree that holds my Woodhaven sign
was dead. If the wind was strong
and anyone was walking in this area it could be dangerous.
So part of this tree came down also.
The tree men arrived at 7:00 yesterday morning.
They had to climb the tree, it was so high
and could not use the machine that had
a high boom on it.
They had spikes on their shoes that dug into the
bark of the tree and kind of scary watching them climb
so very high. They had already cut the large section
in many pieces and lowered them with a rope
when I decided to take an image of the man in the tree.
Should have picked up camera sooner, wanted my son to
see his mom's latest project - but never thought of it.
there are still small limbs everywhere among my flower garden.
I love my home surrounded by nature - one of the reasons
for moving back home was to leave this area in its natural state.
I wanted less work, less grooming, less expense and I have been surprised
that so far it has not happened.
I believe it is safe as I can make it close to my home and need to be
aware of dead limbs on trees as I walk in the woods. The paths that have been made
make it easier to be aware of any high limbs on trees that are a danger.
Well aware a part of my personality is to continually groom
and hoping I am done for a while.
