A tree will fall.
As far as we can tell, the only damage to our house is a gutter. It even missed the neighbor’s car that was parked out front of our house.
Unfortunately, this is a 50+-year-old tree that provided tons of shade along the front of our house. For a matter-of-fact, when the contractor was bidding on building our house, he suggested we flip the design to save the tree. Then mother nature came for a visit and our lovely shade tree is in two pieces. A piece of history gone and a lot of money out-of-pocket to get the rest of the tree cut down.
Now we have the task of removing the downed half and having the other half removed. Hubby feels this is a good opportunity to go out and buy that chainsaw and gear he’ll need one day on the homestead and I am already beginning to think about what kind of tree I would like to plant in its place. I’m thinking a flowering variety of tree would look very nice 🙂
