Big heavy truck on my front lawn...........
I saw a pile of tree branches, but by the time I got home, they had already hauled away two truckloads of debris, so it did not look bad.
This is all that was left of the apple tree:
It seems that apple tree trunks are a popular commodity ... neighbors came down asking if they could have the trunks...of course, nobody offered to cut the tree down in exchange for the wood, but if we were paying to have it cut down, suddenly everyone wanted it! :) I guess it's used for adding flavor when BBQing. We gave it to whomever was the first person to ask...
At the end of the work day, there was only six trees left to cut down. They will come back on Monday to finish.
Right now I am feeling ambivalent....there is so much work we will have to do next year...Removing the apple tree has totally changed that border....the path that led to a bench is now in the wrong place...etc. etc. etc. Where I used to have shade, I now have full sun... We need to bring in new top soil....etc. etc. etc. It's overwhelming!
Rather than think about all the work I will soon have, I went out on the deck and cut down most of the Trebbiano dahlias that were blooming so I could bring them inside to enjoy over the weekend. I made this quick centerpiece for my dining room table:
