Remember my story about the broken bradford pear, and now for the rest of the story. Bev and I got up at 5:00am this morning so she could take her sister to an early morning appointment and I made my coffee and went to get the paper - it was warm and calm outside. While I was sitting here reading blogs, I heard an unusual noise, but Bev thought is was a vehicle going by, so I didn't think much about it. Later when I took the dogs out, this is what I found. I guess this answers the question about whether the tree will survive.
I still hadn’t finished cutting up the larger pieces from the last time and had moved my trailer over with the intent on loading the logs into it as I cut them up. As you can see, I didn’t move it far enough – I think it may be a falling branch magnet.
I believe there is now less than half a tree left and I sure hope it will stay up until it gets cooler. Bev is already thinking about a replacement.
There is probably about 3 times as much as fell the first time.
I sure look forward to dealing with the tree in this weather, it's supposed to be 98* tomorrow – I’d like to just wait until fall, but it’s semi blocking the garages again and I want to move it before the leaves fall off, or I’ll have to deal with them too. All I can say at this point is %#*@$*?#.
Hope you had a great day and thanks for stopping by.
