Wedge opened up - tree ready to come downJeff finishing off treeTimber!1!Stump

Jeff came over this morning with his Stihl chainsaw and took down a dead pine. Would have done it myself, I am a little cautious when it comes to a 40′ tree!

4. The stump – now I have to dig it out

The tree after felling. I hate to take trees down, this one had been dead for a year and I didn’t want it coming down in a storm and landing on the house. I have been busy planting other trees to replace the few I have removed or have died in the last few years.
