|cutting down Grand Villa trees|
This week chainsaws and cracking wood can be heard on the morning air -- more trees are being cut down. I was very sad to see the two trees to the west of my front door come down last week. The trees supplied wonderful shade, and I was able to sit on the bench to knit, visit, or read. With the trees felled, it is too uncomfortable to sit in the sun.
|both trees were felled in short order|
I was told the insurance company strongly suggested the trees come down and be replaced with types that did not get as tall. The Aspen and pine trees will be spared the chainsaw, but all the other species will be felled.
The tree that was planted recently on the south side of my apartment is a Buckeye, and the replacement for my shade trees will be Hawthorns.
