Bye bye big trees
A guy named Rick Turk came to the house yesterday, with a crew of 5 guys and some really big-ass equipment (crane, chipper, trucks and as many power saws as I have ever seen in one place) to start the selective tree removal. Harry had a blast watching them balance tree trunks onto truck beds and saw massive tree trunks off their bases. Below, just a highlight of the fun:
And for all of you tree lovers, I should add the disclaimer that we only took trees out that could not safely remain on the property, either for reasons of disease or encroachment on the foundation. And this only after much deliberation and consultation.
