Re: Early morning Activities - 11/17
The picture doesn't do justice to just how big that tree is and the girth of the limb that was taken down. My trees are wonderful in the Summer. Their canopy provides shade most of the day. In the Fall not so nice..and one of the reasons I stay behind until the leaves are down. Every couple of years they throw a bumper crop of acorns, not this year thank heavens. Our yard service usually begins Fall clean-up too early and its a waste of money because then Spring clean-up is necessary too. By then, piles of leaves still sitting are bug ridden and the grass underneath has died. I do get a Spring cleanup. These trees dwarf the house and can be concerning in foul weather. I entertained the idea at one point of having a couple taken down but the cost too prohibitive and they are otherwise healthy. Today's trim alone was close to $1000.
Knowing this was Mike's line of work and the agility it takes makes his situation even sadder if that's possible.
