Yelling “Timber” from the Front Yard

This past weekend I had my first taste of the lumberjack trade (sort of). Two friends came over and we chopped down a 30-40 foot tree in my front yard. This tree had a natural lean already, was no longer producing leaves, and was plagued with mistletoe. It had really become an eyesore, and I sure am glad to see it gone. This first chopping experience was actually quite fun. The clean-up on the other hand….. I could’ve lived without that. Enjoy a video below of the moment the tree fell.


In real estate appraisal terminology, we uprooted a fixture that had no contributory value whatsover. Actually, this tree probably contributed negatively to the site since the cost for removal would be the best indicator of value.

      That’s definitely true, Keith. And now it’s all ready to be fire wood in the next 1-2 years when it dries out.
