During the second week after they closed on the house, the tree removal guys showed up and did their magic. It was something to see. Nothing better than seeing the professionals at work.
That little Bobcat machine was amazing. It was able to get a lot of the tree and tree limbs out of the water and drag them up onto the little bank that was a bit steep. Then the tree guys were able to cut up the debris so it could be picked up and carried around to the front of the house where the mulch truck and log truck were.
Unfortunately, along with the fallen trees, a few stationary shrubs got cleared out as well. The back of the boat house was covered up a little by the wild little shrubs. Now that they are out, the back of the boat house is open to the neighbors up the hill and across the street. We were hoping we could use the back of the boat house for some outdoor storage but since it is exposed, we'll have to find somewhere else to put things. Don't want to clutter things up and make the property unsightly.
The amazing thing here was not only the removal of some trees that were too near the house and failing, but also the removal of all the underbrush. That meant the backyard became a useful backyard for the dog and the kids. The little Bobcat smoothed the yard out and did a pretty good job of landscaping. Once the fence is up it will be great back there.
The tree guys came back and used a heavy duty stump grinder. The first tree they took out was just off the right corner of the house. And there were a couple off the opposite corner of the house near the garage.
That it for this edition of the Roadrunner Chronicles! Thanks for joining us today.
