We had a big tree taken down this week.
Back in December an unusually fierce windstorm uprooted this ash tree. It stood for decades on the highest line of our land, inches below the road. But high winds finally uprooted it, skewing it downslope, where it was caught by a nearby maple tree.
There the ash stood (or leaned), a massive thing tilted 45 degrees, barely balanced, and pointing downhill towards our house. It had to go.
Next? We will store the wood to dry.
