Well, the tree guy got delayed on another tree project so we had to be put on hold. That’s okay. We have time before the storms hit. But we did sorta wait till noon and then realized he must’ve still been on the other job. Usually, tree people don’t start trees that late in the […]
Today we have 2 Ponderosas coming down by the tree cutting company. One is leaning toward the house although it isn’t a big lean but enough. This tree is on the South East side and that’s where our winds come in the winter for the most part. With the use of a crane, this tree […]
