Tree surgery

After about 4 weeks of waiting for the city to pick up the branches that Rusty cut down, we realized that we were going to have to get another tree service to finish the job. Rusty recommended and old partner of his who had all the equipment to do the job right. They showed up last friday and went to town!
They finished cutting down the trees, chipped up all the branches, loaded the trunks into a big truck and then ground the stumps into mulch. In less than six hours the job was done.
It was certainly bittersweet as we loved the shade of those trees, but the cost of the root damage wasn't worth the price. The house looks so different now!
