Make Way for the McMansions Part 3: Big Tree Down
The big - ol - nasty and invasive 'Tree of Heaven' (Ailanthus altissima) came down this past week.
However, the new homes nextdoor, have dramatically shaded the back half of our quarter acre. And that means....my vegetable garden gets very little direct sunlight.
We like our homegrown tomatoes.
So, nearly 3K later. The tree is down. Here are some pics of the event.
I was amazed at the men who shimmied up the branches and dangled from the tree top. Pros!! This crew did a great job!
With the canopy gone, the yard brightened. Sunlight!! Now....how to manage the downed wood?
There is a lot to move and process. I have a giant bile of bark chips in my driveway.
Little these days, seems to impress Silver cat.
