The Will to Live

Our century old maple got an "extreme makeover" last fall after threatening to fall on our house. We were sad to see it go, but excited for it's second life as the tree house pedestal (coming soon to our backyard :-) Our tree guy, Cy, said the tree was well over a hundred years old and one of the biggest he'd ever cut down. It had seven major limbs that were the size of normal trees themselves. After removing the entire canopy of the tree, 7 limbs and all we thought the tree was done for. THOUGHT.

Now get very quiet....listen carefully....can you hear it? That's our tree yelling at us from the backyard.....I......WILL.....NOT......DIE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is what we found last week. Good luck tree.

  1. I bet in the next month or so you will see many more of those little sprouts shooting off it.


I kinda love comments, who doesn't? Nice comments. Only. I'm picky that way. ;-)
