Bye Bye!


We had a tree cut down in our yard a few weeks ago. It was really impressive to watch. The guy just shimmied up there with the chain saw and started cutting, while the guys on the ground pulled it down with a rope.


Once on the ground it got cut up into little chunks. We still don't know what to do with all the wood, it's just sitting in our yard now. We don't have a fireplace (it doesn't get that cold) and they won't pick stumps up with the regular trash. Any of you out there have experience with fallen trees?

I think most folks don't burn pine in their fireplaces. You may need to haul it away yourself - do you have any friends with land in the country? Of course, you could burn it outside, in a woodpile, if it's legal where you are, or a country friend could burn it out there. A whole tree is a LOT of wood!

Nice photos. Your photography is always nice to see.

Thanks for your visit.

I will comment more at another time as I just returned from hospital and am not back to normal.

some people will buy it... or you can pay someone to haul it away. Try Craigslist. Hear you have a part at Fondren!!! AWESOME!!!! Miss ya!

Someone else was telling me that you can't burn pine indoors. It gives off some kind of fumes. And unfortunately we don't have a truck and we don't really know anyone that lives int he country. Guess we will have to find someone to haul it away.

It can be very dangerous work, and I'm always amazed at how effectively and efficiently they accomplish it, too.

Nice blog here. I've enjoyed looking at your photos. Jackson's my hometown, though I live far from there now.

I wanted you to know that I stopped by, but because of my shoulder surgery, I can't type with both hands. Visiting the sites, though, has helped brighten my day!
