The day before yesterday, I posted a blog about a dangerous tree that had ants in it and the ants attacked my wife. Well, we are both proud to announce that that tree is no longer growing there. Go back to it if your memory needs refreshed or if you missed it:
Wondering about a Dangerous Tree.
My son came up yesterday with a couple of his chain saws (he collects Stihl chain saws) and before I could it out to see what was going on, he had it down. This is all that is left of it:
He cut it down and then, using the long bar saw, cut it off as flush to the ground as possible. The picture below shows the final slice:
He then drug it out to our front lot. He says out there he will have more room to cut it up and load it in his truck. It is a Live Oak, of course now it is a dead or dying live oak.
This tree has had a hard life. It must have been hit with lightning at one time, and then the hurricane probably did a pruning job on it. It looks like part of the main section was damaged some time ago.
Now, when returning from a trip, I will not have to back up to complete the turn into the rest of my driveway. I will be able to pull right through and then back up into my parking spot, where you see it sitting at this time.
Now, you all have a great day, you hear?
