Timber!!

 Only it was not quite as dramatic as that.

A sad farewell

This was minutes after the first pic

About 20 minutes later


All that's left.  My tree is now
the pile of chippings in the background.


He's such a cutie.  I'd adopt him, 
if he didn't already have great
parents.

What? No backstory? Why did the tree get chipped???

Why did the tree have to be taken down??

I probably mentioned it a long time ago, but it had two diseases. One could be treated, but the other was fatal, so to speak. It’s been slowly dying over the last 10 years or so. I decided that it would be safer if it were down, given its proximity to the house.

And given the regular blasts of high winds!

It is amazing to watch those tree guys work, with all the ropes and gadgets hanging off them. What are you going to do with all those amazing chips?

A great loss, I'm sure.

It's a sad thing to lose a tree but as someone who had not one, but two large trees fall on a house last fall, I'd say you were very wise.

PS: My husband's name is Tim. I call him Tim-ber because he fell for me.

I agree with everyone else....I'm pretty sure there is a blogging rule that says you have to tell the whole story.

Sad that you lost the tree, but very understandable, indeed! It is really amazing to watch these professionals do their work! Nice mulch for sure, especially if you have blueberries!

we have a dead tree that needs to be taken down. the deep freeze killed the mature tree but not the saplings. go figure.

Mama Pea beat me to the question. Yeah, if it was diseased and dying then best to take it down. Sorry you had to do so, though. Glad to hear you got the other hip replacement on schedule. Take care of yourself meanwhile.

Oh, that's a shame. Always sad to say goodbye to a tree.
