Some of my pine trees are infested with tree killing insects. They bore into the tree and suck out the sap. The tree dies first at the top. I called to have two dead trees cut down.
Early in the morning, the chain saws were buzzing! Zeke was not afraid. He had to look outside to see what was going on.
|What is all that noise?|
The first was very tall. The needles were brown and dead.
|Branches are cut while climbing up|
|See the top falling to the right.|
|The top is gone!|
The second tree is a bit smaller. First, the climb up. Branches are cut off while climbing up.
The dead top of the tree hits the ground.
Finally the trunk of the tree is finished off.
Zeke made himself comfortable by the back door. He was not afraid, and observed everything. "That would make a great scratching post, " he says.
I have more infested trees. My neighbor does as well. The tree cutters will be called back again in the near future.
