Fascinating! Good tree people can be hard to find.

I'm glad it went so well! What a relief to have a problematic tree gone. I know you'll be happy when they are able to get to the second one.

You read my mind as I was thinking "but what about the plants buried under the snow"... good you had them marked off.

LOREE — Hoping my system worked. We had snow again last weekend and next week is supposed to be very cold, so I am hoping all my babies make it through the winter.

Removing a tree, and cutting others back, is often bittersweet but a good crew takes the stress down a level. I hope your experience with the sugar maple goes as smoothly.

Great shots from your lofty viewing point. Much warmer than standing out in the snow as well!
The BBC are repeating the American Gardens series as a lead in to the next season of Gardeners’ World. Really looking forward to watching those again.


Fascinating description and photos! I always find it slightly sad when a tree is cut down, but there are definitely times when it should happen. And it sounds like yours are warranted. We need to have some branches trimmed on our property, and probably some very old Oaks removed. I will be very sad when that happens. But change is good when it's the right time.

I love watching the tree removal crews. It is an art. Your tape is a great idea.
My computer has been at the repair shop for a week so I am catching up with reading posts. Such awful cold coming at us this weekend. Stay warm.

LISA — We look like we are finally coming out of our major cold spell.  Luckily we have a lot of snow on the ground so the plants should be OK.
