Timber!

Today was the day…..day one…. of the removal of the dead trees that didn’t make it through the past year. Our heroes, http://www.schuylkilltree.com/, arrived to start their work here in searing heat and humidity. My hat goes off to all who must labor in this type of weather.

It wasn’t long until George and Rudy began their upward climb:

And, down they came one by one……..

Lots of firewood and mulch.

Plus, I asked to have a couple stumps cut off high so I could use them for pots, or an arbor, or pumpkins…..the possibilities are endless 🙂

Tomorrow…..is the big tree….near the corner of the house. I’d be nervous but these guys are professionals!
