The Trees Are Down!


We used Walker Tree Service as they're the fellows you see about town on the power lines, licensed and insured etc etc. Which is a good thing as one of these huge branches fell sidewise and cracked my new siding.  It's ok - no one is hurt and I trust they'll fix it.

This should also give you an idea how thick and large the trees were - and hopefully, how many leaves we will NOT be raking and mowing this fall!

Now it feels sort of empty on that side yard.  We also removed a tree that was starting to block our view from the back windows.  Much more sun hits our lot now.

  1. That looks like it was a big tree! Always happy to have less leaves to rake. Hope they fix the siding.

    1. Thanks! I think they will fix it. I haven't paid them yet so here's hoping it gets done soon for everyone's sake. :)

    1. See that's why we wanted these down - imagine a tree over 100 feet tall going down on your roof.

  3. Here in Australia I worry when I see people cutting down large shady trees for no good reason, but that's my view and perhaps they do have a reason. But I see a lot of new developments with not a tree in sight and every home with large airconditioners that seem to run 24/7/365.

    1. From my side, the trees were WAY TOO TALL and even one branch being cut the wrong way (or whatever happened) was enough to crack my new siding. I think we'll look into getting more trees, but not ones that will dwarf the house and pose danger during storms.
