"It's the nature of the willow beast"

That's what the man from the tree service said about the big limb that tore off and got hung-up in the tree after Tuesday's thunderstorm.

I didn't notice the problem until after I had already mowed under the tree. Once I saw it, I made sure everybody steered clear of the tree until the tree service could deal with it. They got the job done this morning in 20 minutes.

Definitely not a do-it-yourself job

The power of men and equipment

  1. Whew! I'm glad it was just the one branch Yvonne, I just love a big old willow tree!

  2. Me too. We got the tree cabled a few years ago to try to prevent the loss of major structural branches.
