Last Spring we had to make the tough decision of cutting down a dying maple tree in our backyard.
Unfortunately we had to cut down our "twin" maples just a few weeks ago. It breaks my heart. Tgry were starting to lean to much towards the house after all of last years rain plus the hurricane in late August. We could tell they were dying. These trees were very old and we loved them very much.
My kids cried. Now our small backyard has no shade for them to play in on hot summer days.
I won't miss the "helicopters" flying off in the Spring or all the leaves falling off in Autumn. But nevertheless, I'll miss those trees and mourn them.
