Tree Trimmers

40 year old Maple Tree

A couple weeks ago a violent thunderstorm swept through the neighborhood and dramatically changed the landscape.  Many trees were uprooted or lost major limbs.  The damage in our yard (above) was limited to this old maple tree, nothing hit the house.

In this picture, a local tree trimmer removes a second major limb that was broken off near the top.  The limb shown during the storm in the photo above has already been removed.

Watching these local “lumberjacks” work is very interesting; an extremely dangerous job that requires agility and strength.  Scampering up the tree like a squirrel, swinging from limb to limb like a monkey, and toting heaving chainsaws like they’re toys, the jacks perform major surgery that maintains the tree’s health.

I’m thankful for crazy people like lumberjacks.

Thought for the Day:  The probability of being watched is directly proportional to the stupidity of your act.   Law of Probability
