Where Did The Shade Go?!?

Posted by: cheryl

That's what I thought after seeing my tree after the trimmers left this afternoon. Funny looking tree huh?? Well, it was pretty heavily damaged during last December's ice storm, which took out a lot of the tree. The electric company said back then that this tree was on the list to be trimmed this spring/summer. I have been seeing those little orange trucks with the black writing on them since all the tree damage last year. Today they finally made it to our house. This is our main "shade" tree. Looks like a stiff north wind may take it out. This tree has been in this yard ever since I can remember. We live in the house that I grew up in. The tree has got to be at least 60 years old. Would hate to see it go...
I took pictures and emailed them to Ritzy. He called today while they were working on the tree.
Didn't do too awful much today. Resting from all the running around yesterday and I will be putting up those peaches tomorrow.
There is a huge pile of limbs out by the road & in my ditch, and I am not too thrilled about that. But they should be gone soon.
One good thing to come of all this is that the grass will finally be able to grow under the tree now. The tree has provided so much shade over the years that grass has hardly ever grown under it.
Don't have to worry about that now ;-)
