It was time for the trees to come down. Basically we had a line of trees between our house and the little pond. They are definitely big and well established, though, not even a fraction of the size of those Virginia pines we took down at Hugo!
Because they "weren't big" they were easy to fell. They didn't need to be climbed, topped, limbed, etc. They were all just chopped down from the ground. They cut down 9 trees in about 5 hours - and there is only one left to do.
|Some trees down, some still up near the house!|
|Gum trees are hardwood - easier to get rid of than the pines because people can burn it. We know folks that heat their homes with wood, and this should be seasoned by the winter. They'll have lots of free wood!|
