In the past six months, we’ve seen the demise of four mammoth trees in our garden, but their loss was nothing compared to what happened at my neighbor’s yesterday just before nightfall.
Thankfully, Jean and her family members visiting from California were unhurt. A few hours made all the difference, however, as Jean’s bedroom was the most damaged part of the house.
Now we’re contemplating the future of our own Goliath, just steps from our front door. We’ve been babying this weak tree for five years, but it might be time to let it go.
At 4+ feet in diameter and shaped like a telephone pole, it could spit our house in two.
What would you do?
