Well we survived (so far) the effects of Tropical Storm / Hurricane ?Cyclone Sandy! We got hit with a bunch of rain, and some really high winds. Mark, Myself and the kittens all were ok, but we were of course worried about those 2 big trees in the backyard.
We were both more worried about the old willow out back. It's taller than the Maple (hard to believe!) and it tends to look a lot more fragile (at least judging by all the broken limb areas that seem to have healed up)
This is it after the storm---and yes, more of it has detatched itself.......
we walked down the road a ways to our neighbor (who does landscaping and seawalls) and asked if they had any way of reaching it (the limbs are still about 12 feet higher than our 24ft ladder). They don't but they're going to talk to someone who does....so let's hope we get it sorted so that it goes down on the ground and not on the kitchen roof or the garage! It's a fairly large limb so ...who knows at this point, eh'?
Ok that is the update for now!
