Today the tree pruning crew arrived at exactly seven AM as promised. Wow, how often does this happen? The crew got right to work starting with knocking down that nasty African Sumac tree. The stump was ground out, it’s gone! The smaller Privet tree was next, it’s stump was also removed with the stump grinder.
Next, the two Mexican Fan Palms were pruned, removing the dead fronds and the stalks that would have produced the seeds in huge quantities, and the flowers that I couldn’t see from the ground. The entire backyard was a major freaking mess that the crew did a heck of a job cleaning up, wow! They saved me plenty of extra work.
I’m so glad this is done, the little yard looks so clean and minimal which is great, minimalism is a wonderful thing. I haven’t decided what to put in place of the trees, or perhaps put nothing there except potted plants and or flowers. I’m looking forward to doing far less leaf blowing to keep the yard clear. Yay!
