So far so good. But it is very tiring to do. And tree limbs are very heavy. And I never ask for help.
Here are some pictures of my day.
the seeds which there are thousands
dropped each day
oh they annoy me so
ladder at the ready
it does a nice job providing shade
but since the old tree is dying
big winds continue to knock off
some of the smaller branches
the cuts out by the street waiting
for pick up Monday
some of the pieces were 25 feet long
the main limbs left are now on the other side
I have to make sure when
I cut them that it doesn't hit the
neighbors screened in pool enclosure
You can see it on the left hand side
of the picture.
Waiting on the left hand side is the new tree
which is actually attached to the old tree
I happened to look next door while I was up on the ladder
to see my neighbors watching me, with coffee in hand, wondering
I think, to see the idiot hanging on with one hand and cutting with
another. I survived for another day!
