A Tree Comes Down at PsiKeep
Back to the brutal present for a moment.
Last spring when Sammy was learning to fly I noticed that one of the large blue pines below the goat pen was dying. I could see that the needles were beginning to sag on that hundred foot tree. By early summer they wee turning brown. It could have been a bark beetle infestation. I do not know otherwise why such a large healthy tree would suddenly die.
I was haunted all winter by that tree. It was massive. And if it fell and blue pines fall all the time, it could wipe out my goats or even come down on the house. I knew I had to hire someone to take it down and burn the debris before the end of the summer.
So this week during Easter break I was able to hire a a tree cutter to drop the tree. For two brutal and exhausting days we worked; Brian cutting and I burning the remains of that tree.
The crude rough cut video below continues the story.
