I know it looks like a bad scene but we tried and tried to work around this 100 foot tree but we couldn't. It was just right in the thick of things. After a few days of trying and discussing other plans it was decided that it had to go. Amazingly, it took only minutes to get it down...one guy, one chain saw, and one push from the EXCAVATOR. It happened so fast that I did not get a picture of it falling but we felt the ground shake. Because I did not believe it would fall where our guy said it would (me of little faith) I was high-tailing it uphill and missed the photo op....oh well. The burn pile lasted for two whole days (just the branches). We are keeping the logs for future use....they are huge. Sorry, big guy.
