One of those huge branches leaned quite close to the house, just above our bedroom. It was only a matter of time before a wind storm would put that thing right through our roof. Time for a trim.
Still, a little hard to see so much of the old tree cut away.
I remember going with my parents to see the aftermath of the Colfax tornado many years ago. After the tree was trimmed, it reminded me very much of the Colfax tornado. :-(
Most of the leaves you see here are from two other maples.
Hopefully there are enough remaining leaves for the big maple to survive.
MISTY: 'Is it safe to come out now?'
Until the trimmings had been cleared away, I had to put a lead on blind little Misty when taking her outdoors, so she wouldn't run into branches. She was very confused. Bridger had been listening to that chain saw all day and had no desire to go out and confront it.
