Last weekend Wade and his Dad put their tractor driving, tree hacking, and chainsaw operating skills to the test. And boy am I glad they did.
Living on property means constantly picking up, clearing, and maintaining the land. Well, when we bought our property it had sadly been neglected; to say uncared for would be an understatement. Read: Wade and I have about 10 years worth of picking up, clearing and maintaining to catch up on. One of the first things on my “things that have to go” list (other than the old truck we can’t seem to even give away), was this tree. It was dead, ugly, and blocking our beautiful view.
Here was our view with the big, ugly, half dead, ugly, tree.
I mean, look at that sunset I was missing out on!
Here is Wade in the reach lift (his Dad is driving). He used a chainsaw to cut the bottom, then attached chains near the top of the trunk so they could safely pull the tree down.
Tree going down!
It’s never a dull moment at the farm… and tree down!
Our new view!!!
Don’t mind that odd, eye sore of an enclosed porch…I have plans for that too.
Ahh, the power of a chainsaw.
Enjoying the view,
