For the past 4 days there has been a lot of activity around our house. We have had two large trees removed. One was the hickory tree, remember the story of the nuts here? Well, between the mess and the close proximity of it to three house, we decided to have it removed. Hoping it will give us some breathing room around our house. We hired someone to do the job since it’s location prohibited heavy equipment and the only way to get it down was to climb it. I was gone for the day so did not get to see how this was done. I am sure it would have been fun to watch. But over the weekend, Mark turned lumberjack and cut down a dying water oak. Living in a hurricane zone makes one think about trees falling. So here’s some photos…
We got above the tree line and could see Regatta Point Marina across the river, but for some reason I could not pry my hands off the rail to take a photo.
So glad this project is over and very thankful for God’s protection… there were no injuries to people or things, just a need for some Advil and epsom salt soaks.
The neighborhood all had their opinion about taking this tree down. Some understood once they realized the danger it posed, but some seemed more concerned for the birds and squirrels than people. But all our neighbors were patient and understanding in putting up with four days of heavy equipment and chainsaw noise. I think we should throw a party as a thank you.
Amazing isn’t it! I know he will miss that old tree, but there are plenty of others for him to relocate to.
Have a good day!
