Trees Gotta Go!





Back in July, the county came out and advised us to let them cut down our three huge bradford trees in our front yard that were all in the powerlines. They offered us $70 voucher for each tree (x3 trees) and they would even grind the stumps down too. Sold! That was back on July 21 and we haven't see since them until yesterday. They rocked and rolled and got most of the work down yesterday evening. Out house has a different dynamtic look to it. It'll take some time to get use to it. We'll take the vouchers to Bennett's nursery and buy some landscaping supplies for around the house. It had definately opened up our front yard. Change is always good in my book.

Wow! That really looks good. I can't wait to see it in person. Those trees were, I was going to try and guess their age, but I don't know. It's bad to cut down a tree because it takes so long for them to grow, but if it's in the wrong space, that's different. The first little house we lived in had a huge weeping willow in the side yard and the city asked to cut it down. I said yes, and when it was gone, I was really sorry for we lost a lot of shade in the yard. It was then I realized how long to took for a tree to grow and I'm protective of them.

Wow, what a difference! I love Bradford Pear trees, but it kills me how easily they can split. I can't wait to see what you do with your new landscaping.

I wish we had that problem with too many trees.
