Taking Down the Tree

We have a monster tree in our front yard that's been dying for ages. Last weekend (Aug. 22) we finally decided to take action and get it down. The nice thing was that it wasn't TOO big, and wasn't near the road or any power lines ... so we could do it ourselves. So Nate was our resident lumber jack, and went to work. It was an all day project, because once it was down, it had to be cut up into segments and stacked in our wood pile, not to mention the branches, that the kids and I hauled to the curb for pickup. The scariest part was all the carpenter ants....the tree was FULL of them. Ugh! What a mess! But we're glad it's down and gone now. :)
