Karen took about 200 photos of the process, but remarkably, missed the dramatic part where the top 30' came down onto our yard, knocking over one of our metal sculptures in the process.
|Unhappy tree. Tree dude climbing it near bottom|
|Lower branches gone. Tree dude about to lop the top|
|The final cut, and...|
|...it comes down...|
|...landing on a prepared space. Almost.|
|The last cuts, then...|
|...and it falls|
|Carefully cutting the top|
|Blue ring visible|
|Stump on the yarrow. Sculpture to the right|
We were sad to lose a tree, but it was his time.
