MY WORLD - Good Bye Wheeping Willow
More participants here
In my world last week we had to separate from our beloved Wheeping Willow. It had shared our lives since 1975 when it was just a cute little tree. But now 34 years later it had become a very huge tree and the people who moved into the recently built houses behind our garden complained because it made too much shadow.
It was quite a difficult task because the tree also was very large and because of the houses around there was not much space.
here it started by cutting off the small branches
then one man, who looked like an alpinist and had a special safety outfit, climbed on the tree to saw the bigger branches.
The boss came to have a look if everything went well and it did !
I was fascinated by the man's work, and had the ambulance phone n° ready (not really)
He was of course secured
I thought what a hard job to do !
But everything went smooth and 4 hours later from our wheeping willow was only a small trunk left.
This had been cut off too of course and now we have a lot more light in our garden. But our cats are not very happy. Their natural cat tree is gone.
