Sunday morning Philip got out of bed early and began to clear the tree away from the cattle yards with his little chainsaw. This was the most important thing to do with the vet arriving the next day. It was a slow and tedious job and when hubby announced that he was going to remove the whole tree himself I suggested that it might be a better idea to get a tree removalist in to do the job. They have a huge wood chipper that will make mince meat of this tree and the gardener will love the mulch.
|One half of the tree is still left standing. The tree made a bit of a mess of the roof over the drafting race!|
The tree that we lost in the front garden was probably a blessing in disguise as we had been thinking of getting rid of it. It just really didn't fit in with our cottage garden theme. It was only a small tree and it had fallen across the road so it was a very easy job to hook it on to the back of the tractor and drag it away.
|We were lucky that this tree fell in the right direction and we never lost a single plant in the garden!|
