The branch is down! Breathing will be a little easier!

I was at work guy came by, but Lloyd said he did a fine job. He also gave some advice about the giant hole in the back of the tree: fill it with Great Stuff. Fortunately, I already had a can to use for a different project, so we spent it on the tree.

Lloyd got out his trust ladder:

Don’t get too worked up. This is how high he was off the ground:

We didn’t have nearly enough. This hole is cavernous!

    Yay! That’s awesome! One more thing off your plate. And your neighbors can pool in peace, knowing that dangerous branch is gone.

    When you said “Great Stuff” I thought maybe it was going to become a time capsule. Have you thought of planting a smaller tree somewhere for when it needs to come down? Would it be worth anything for lumber? Does a hole that big mean it may not live to much longer? You have probably considered all of these at some point. Glad it is safe again.
