In an earlier post, I mentioned that the tree expert from the power company had said the weeping willow had to go. It was growing into the power line. I knew that the tree had to go–it was growing into the power line. Did the person that placed it there look up? I’ll never know.
Ten years go, I had installed a tree swing for Briana. Her uncle, Dick, had donated a huge truck tire for the purpose. Briana outgrew the tire swing and I took it down. I liked the look of that tree, but Sylvia disliked the many branches that it dropped on the yard. Neither opinion mattered. The weeping willow had to go.
In the spring, the work crew appeared and began their work. I wondered as I watched, how long would it take to remove the tree. In short–not long at all.
Relax. They are not that fast! This is another animated gif.
The blue silo on the left side of these pictures is west of us. With the willow and the ash trees gone, I am able to get better sunset pictures–like those I posted yesterday.
I did use a tripod for shooting these, but turned off the camera between shots. Slightly different zoom settings resulted.
There are 17 frames in the animated gif. When I captured the images, I was planning on showing you three or four jpg images. I like this way better.
What do you think?
