I heard a loud *crunch* noise this morning. It seems a pretty good-sized limb fell off the hackberry tree in the back yard, taking out a ham antenna and about three feet of fence.
It just hasn't been a good summer for trees here at Roseholme Cottage.
I'm off to play with a little camper-size bow saw and some lopper thingies. Looks like our tree hippie is going to get some more singing time.
UPDATE: Sawing through a green, 4"+ diameter Celtis occidentalis bough repeatedly with a little one-hand bow saw will take the starch right out of you. I'm taking a breather.
