April 3 – BrightSquare and Weekend Skies – Bright Blue

Here is my entry for Becky’s for April BrightSquare challenge.  This is also my entry for Hammad,’s  Weekend Skies Challenge.

The tree in our neighbor’s yard was taken down on Thursday. This tree has been dying for the past five years. It was also the tree whose branch fell in our yard during the ice storm. It was good to see this tree come down. It was a beautiful bright day with blue skies. I was able to sit outside and watch him and his ground crew for hours.

This photo was taken shortly after he began taking it down.
This is a large portion of branch coming down. Notice all the ropes. It was totally fascinating to watch and capture in photos..
Notice the saw dust flying as the tree is almost down.

I’ve put together a list of challenges and their hosts.  So if you know a challenge host, please direct them to my blog.  Feel free to contact me anytime.  I hope everyone will be able to use my lists.

    • This tree needed to be taken down. We were lucky when the big branch crashed down. Only the top branches hit our house … it hit hard enough to shake the entire house.

  1. My kid does this only around power lines. Makes a mama proud (and very anxious). It always makes me chuckle – dream job: getting paid to climb trees. 😉 Enjoy the sunshine!


  2. Great shots Cee! Too bad about the tree but you can see the death rings in the log of one of those photos. We have some trees that have to come down too.


    • If the biggest part that faced our house had fallen in the ice storm, it would have split our house in two. Believe it was nice seeing that tree come down. It has worried us for the last couple of years.

      • I understand that! My neighbor had a tree come down in Hurricane Matthew. It landed a foot from his roof in the middle of his backyard. It wasn’t his tree. It was neighbor behind him. The one and only tree he had in is front yard came down too and hit is house. Damaged his front porch area. Minor damage compared to what it could have been. We have a lot of trees in our backyard and I worry during every hurricane. 🙂
