When giving directions to our house, we used to say it’s the one next to Pep Boys with the big pine tree in front. Now, I’m at a loss as to how to describe our property. Now, the pine tree is no longer. It’s either mulch, sawdust or firewood. Just stepping outside, without the tree there, it’s at least 10 degrees warmer than it was before. Sure going to miss the shade. We are deciding still what to plant in its place.
Here is the final installment of pictures.
Above are some more pictures as it came down. If you look closely at the ground, you can see that the top of the tree fell close to us and actually crumbled as it hit the ground. Just a skeleton of itself now.
Can we say TIMBER!
Well, a sad day has come. Our old pine tree that sat in our front yard and was home to many squirrels, birds, will soon no longer be! I will miss hearing the squirrels waking us up early in the morning with their chattering or hearing the blue jays squawking.
The people have come to cut down our beloved tree as it is dying a slow death and is dropping branches. It’s time for it to go. I will miss it. But at the same time it’s safer in the long run. Yesterday I wrote that it hit my daughter’s car and took out the rear window. Today while watching them cut it down, my hubby told me that there is a large branch that faces the street and it has a crack about 2 feet in width just waiting for some unsuspecting vehicle or person to fall on.
Here is the damage from yesterday:
And underneath is the tree as it goes down and into the chipper. At least we will have plenty of firewood for a while. Not that we can really have fires here in Fresno that often. More to come later today.
