Fun Day

Maritime Pine (Pinus pinaster)Image via Wikipedia

I look like I've been in a catfight. My hands and arms are covered with scratches. My brother came over today to help me cut down parts of a tree that is growing all over my yard. One branch is hanging so low that when I mow my yard I have to push it out of the way. Other branches were hanging dangerously over my fence and home. The bad part, it was a pine tree with lots of pine cones. There was no way to cut and move the branches without getting a lot of cuts and scratches.

You know, those branches didn't look so big up in the air, growing out of that tree. But once we cut them down and they were piled up on the ground, boy, did they look big. It took us three trips with a full pickup to get rid of all those branches.

I figured I owed my brother at least a free meal so afterwards we went to Chilis to eat.

We had a significant windstorm several days ago, and it knocked down a bunch of branches from pine trees. There's one pretty large tree behind my place that is leaning and has a split up it's trunk.

It's not on our property, so I need to figure out who to call to have it down. It looks dangerous.
