Goodbye, old tree
18 November, 2006
This huge, old cottonwood tree has been a problem since I bought my house. In addition to all the nasty fluffy stuff it releases in spring, it’s old and brittle and drops limbs from time to time. One time, it dropped a limb on the phone wires that are on the south side of the tree – pulling down the lines and pulling a soffit off the back of my house.
If all goes as planned, this tree will be gone by the end of the weekend. I don’t like the idea of cutting down such a large old tree, but I can’t sit around and wait for it to fall on my house.
Anyway, I felt like I should at least document it before destroying it.
Oh, and thanks, Grandma. Your gift is paying for this.
