I had a tree service come in a few weeks ago and take down an old tree. No sooner had the service left than part of my neighbor's tree came crashing down. Here, he instructs his son on the proper use of a chain saw to remove some of the branches.
They got this taken down, chipped up, and the yard tidied. Yesterday, another part of the same tree (a huge, four-trunked oak) took a dive. Tomorrow, they will pull the entire tree. Sad to lose a tree, but it's not safe to have it up any more, especially given the crazy wind & rain storms that have zoomed through here lately.
