Tree felling day!

We've been keeping our eye on this tree since we arrived at the cabin last April. 

About a month ago, it lost one of it's major limbs. With all the wind storms we get on top of our mountain we started getting a lot of concerns about this tree, especially after one of the storms had 60 mph winds for well over 12 hours. That was a very long night!

A couple of weeks ago the tree fellers showed up and took down that tree. Look at that guy way, way, way up there! You sure couldn't get Mum to do that!

They topped off another tree near our fence line that had been hit by lightening before we moved in. Good guys, they just missed my weave poles!

And there was one other big pine that was leaning toward the cabin, and surely would have taken out the roof if it would have fallen. They barely topped this one off and fell this over 70 footer toward the road. It was very, very cool and felt a little like a man made earthquake. We barked!

Later in the afternoon we had a few remains that needed cleaning up, so Gracie got busy!

  1. We had huge branches fall at our house this winter and we feel fortunate too that they did very little damage!

    Love ya lots,
