Sometimes nature's course can be very inconvenient! An electrical storm passed through the mountains a year or so ago, knocking down the top of a huge tree near the homestead cabin at the other end of our property. Fortunately it didn't land on the cabin, but it did crush a dandy little storage shed nearby. Months later, another storm blew down a smaller pine tree, creating quite an unsightly mess. Last week Brent removed the larger tree top, but this week he decided to tackle the smaller one that was suspended in the air.
Of course, I think he believes that he's still twenty, so up he climbed, onto the smaller tree. His plan --- to cut off the end of the tree.
Yeah! It worked and he was quite pleased. Getting back down was the next problem, but with the help of a large chain, he was able to lower the chain-saw to the ground and then walk back down the tree trunk.
Whew! He made it safely back to earth! And now the work begins.
Trimming, pulling log sections with chain and truck, and lots of picking up of old wood that had been the shed, and more await. He was busy! All this work --- at the place where Brent is most content --- maybe he should have been a logger!
Enjoy a peaceful week, my friends!
