I am trying to remember the last time I had my trees trimmed. I think it was about 6 years ago. We trimmed then very far so they wouldn't grow for a while. I think we will still need to trim them this year.
Tree removal would be easier if there were no homes, businesses, or power lines nearby. This rope is probably in place to keep this tree from hitting the power lines in the background. The man at the base seems to be giving orders for pulling the tree in the right direction.
We have such a huge tree in our yard that has been there since we even moved into our house. As the tree gets older and the weather gets worse, I'm afraid it could fall over and cause some serious damage to our home. Something needs to happen because I don't want any of my kids getting hurt!
I would really like to have a landscape company come in and finish our front yard. We just moved in and our front yard is just dirt and very plain. I would like to get some grass in and maybe turn it into a little sanctuary for plants. Maybe get a little walkway cutting through to the house.
I was shopping for hardware a few years ago but was unable to find my favorite kind of wrench. This year I hope that it has managed to make its way back into the market. If I has I will buy as many as I can to share with my friends, you have to take advantage of situations like this. http://www.koontz.com/
Getting sod laid down is satisfying work, especially when you can see everything after you are finished putting it in place. The next part is a waiting game. Will it take? Will the grass put down roots? Seeing it turn green and secure itself in place is real success.
This shot captures the moment in cutting a tree when it's about to fall. Land clearing and tree removal were necessary when American was a new country; this kind of work is still needed in some places. There are trucks to pull up stumps now, instead of mules, but they both use chains.
