Annie decided she needed to inspect the huge pile of branches and needles removed from the trees.
The last tree to go down today will provide more light in the garden and do away with falling needles. I had a hard time finding the stump until I realized it was still acting as a post for the garden gate.All the wood from the trees will be split to provide firewood for the next few winters. Now that is another upside of the project. We certainly found another use for the trees.
