With great fanfare...nothing happened...

After weeks of anticipation, this tree was NOT cut down today. It was NOT carefully disassembled limb by dead limb. It was NOT lifted up over nervous rooftops by a skillful crane.

Nope. After our neighbor notified us that this dead pine tree would come out starting at 8am this morning, we returned home to a view of a dead pine tree.

The world's events do not seem to be aware of my blogging needs.

[Update: Our theory now is that today's periodic high winds most likely squashed the tree extraction. Tonight, the gusts are particularly strong...as we listen to the dead limbs creak. We're sure glad that OUR house isn't downhill from the tree!]

dead trees are such good wildlife habitat, are you sure you neighbor should really cut it down :-)

The trick with this tree is HOW it died. We've heard that when the blue house below the tree (the house shown in the photo) was built, the root system of the tree was severely cut. So, unfortunately, the tree is going to be dangerous as it dies. For us, we like the natural look.

I am okay with a dead tree going if it is replaced with a live one. I hope that it is not uprooted and paved over.
