We have a big branch down!
After talking to the tree company,
we made the very sad decision
that our Bradford Pear tree needs to be removed.
It's too close to the house.
The wood is too soft to hold itself up when it gets this big. (It's huge!)
Branches are easily damaged, rot on the inside and then fall.
I'm so glad I was not weeding over there when it fell.
(Today I am very grateful for the wasps that kept me out of there.)
Thank you for providing us with shade.
Thank you for the beautiful display of snowy white blooms every spring.
Thank you for providing a safe home for the birds.
It's time to say goodbye.
