The tree service came back today for the two pines. Watching that first pine being topped off was just as nerve wracking as watching the oak yesterday! With Nate's workshop right beside the trees and the power lines running behind the yards, I marvel at their precision in topping off and dropping each tree. Even with the day being overcast, I can see how much more open the yard will be, and I'm excited to see the difference it will make once the sun gets higher in the sky. It's hard to tell from the picture, but that oak cast alot of shade over the yard during the summer. I hate taking down beautiful healthy trees, but believe me, there are many more you don't see on all sides.
Here are some before and after photos for your viewing pleasure!
