Our big tree is gone!

First, Mike and I have been sick for what seems like forever, or at least most of September. REALLY didn't feel like blogging.

Our Sycamore/cottonless cottonwood tree has been dying. The dying accelerated this summer, and after many false starts, we got it taken down before some big branches could do damage to the neighbor's home. Here is movie made from multiple clips to show the process (beware: the sound ranges from silent to super loud, so you might want to turn the sound down...)

YIkes! That is one massive tree! Didn't realize how big till further into the video when the crane was taking the cut portion away. Cool video clips.

That was a huge tree. I'm glad you were able to get it out before it smashed a house. That does make you a little nervous watching the branch go over your house. I hope you're both feeling better.
