When we bought our house in 2006 we knew we had a very large oak tree that wasn't fully alive anymore. We aren't exactly sure what killed it, but the thought of it falling down unexpectedly was enough to make us nervous. Finally this fall, we decided as sad as it was, it needed to come down. Since we have a wood-burning stove in our basement, we didn't want all of the wood to be taken. Needless to say, we had and still have a large part of the tree in our yard. Which is fine by me. It will be put to good use. We have even talked about having someone make different things out of the tree (furniture, wooden bowls, and who knows).Then the tree is never really gone.
To be funny we sent photos of the tree with Mike in them. We made it look like he had cut the tree down with an ax. :) These pictures made me smile, so I thought I would share.
