That was quick work and all the debris gone too . You have so many trees around your house, in a short while you will have forgotten it was ever there . It's always a worry when such a big tree is being felled so near to the house. Well done to your grandson.

Good Morning, Lynne! Wow, they made downing that tree look easy! I am with you I would have been nervous! And kudos to your grandson for helping out! Have a happy day!

I would have been a little nervous too--curious but nervous. Glad all worked out well. How nice to have that young man close enough to help. Happy birthday to Jordon.

Looks good. Lots of work. Hard to believe how much those trees grow. We remember when we first planted and now...WOW!

carolann said...

Well done Grandson. You have good neighbors to have to hear you working so early.

Here where we live. Know one does anything till 9.

Even to cut grass.

Pamela Gordon said...

That was quite a project and I'm glad it got done safely! It was quite overwhelming in it's size and it's absence must brighten the house up inside as well. Will you make a garden expansion in it's place or lawn?

Bonnie said...

Wow! Everyone involved made it look easy. Eight-thirty doesn't sound so early to me, but here the temps begin to rise with the sun. I tend to rush out at daybreak. Love the look of the open corner. Enjoy the day......and rest! Hugs!

It doesn't look like it will be missed...Your neighbors should be up by 8:30 anyway..Glad everything was done so quickly and safely....ks great..Looks great..

Kim said...

I hate when trees come down, I'm a Nervous Nelly and my hubby always has to be in the thick of it.Glad yours came down safely!

I'm sure it will be a beautiful spot when you have it all finished. We don't have to chop our tree's down. They are dying from lack of water and...or burning up from fires.

Latane Barton said...

There it went. kaboom. Know you are glad that's over and done with.

TexWisGirl said...

i was enamored by the beautiful trees in the backdrop!

Gail said...

They made that look so easy!

I know it's not. We have a few close to the houses and power lines that will require professional removal.

Cheryl @ TFD said...

We have a very tall evergreen tree near our house that needs to come down. I hate to lose them, but this one appears to be dying. You have lots of pretty trees in your yard!

Margaret Adamson said...

A job well executed but I do not like to think of trees being felled. they take so long to grow and then are cut down in their prime

bj said...

O, I love it when we can mark DONE on our To Do List.
Looks like they did a perfect job...and what beautiful country you live in.
Oh, by the way, did you like the top you ordered from here in Lubbock ?

Kerin said...

What a big job! Glad that it all went smoothly, and everyone stayed safe.
Looking forward to seeing what changes you'll be making there.... one thing is for certain, it will look gorgeous!
Your yard and gardens always look gorgeous!!

Have a happy day.

Well done. I always enjoy seeing pictures of your grandson too. Makes me think of my Emma. Good to have handy helpers around. Have fun landscaping your area. Stay cool this weekend!
