First, the men from the tree company cut down some of the smaller branches. These formed a trampoline that the man in the lift aimed for when he threw down the larger branches.
I just went through my archives to see if I could find photos that show the height of the trees hovering over our little hobbit house. I really don't have any that show the full height of either of them, but here are two for-instances.
|Branch fell where Lindy naps!|
The main reason I wanted the trees trimmed was the big branch that had fallen from one of them. It landed right where our dog Lindy naps during the day. Fortunately, it fell at night, but I didn't want to take any more chances. (The building seen behind the tree is a shed.)
Both trees can be seen in the second photo. They do provide plenty of shade, even shading the cars in the afternoon, but this old photo doesn't show how tall they really are. Our house is small, and not only small, it is low, and I think it is vulnerable. I'm glad the trees were trimmed.
Our World Tuesday
Our World is hosted this week by Lady Fi and Oscar. My husband sure wishes our Lindy would swim like Oscar, but she's just not interested.
