One Very Tall Tree

It dwarfs our little house.
This shows its full height.
We love our trees but this one has always made me nervous in a wind storm or the ice storms we have occasionally had in Puget Sound. We have lost several branches but luckily none have ever landed on the house, however, branches have landed on the wires leading to the house. Scott removed the branches and reconnected the standard to the house that was bent away from the house by the weight of the branches and the ice.

As you can see in the first picture, it truly dwarfs our little house and stands 80'-100' into the blue sky.

One of our first goals in maximizing our productive space was to bring this tree down. We needed to save up for the money to pay for the felling. The Lord provided a wonderful service that we would be happy to recommend. I will add their information to the post as soon as I have their permission. They actually donated some of their time to the project so our out of pocket cash was a lot less than the other quotes we had been given.

Check in tomorrow to see the actual video of the felling.
