You have probably heard of the big section of the tree that fell during the really strong wind. Well on Saturday afternoon, my dad went out to cut it up and take it away. Mr. Arend, came over to help him do this hard project. Along with Mr. Arend, Thomas also came to help out hauling limbs. This was a cold, very bright and sunny day and they worked very hard. Hopefully they were wearing ear plugs because the sound of the chainsaw was piercing. I loved the smell of the tree limb branches that came greeting me in the gentle wind. But that soon ended when the chainsaw's loud noises and smokey smell interfered with the wonderful smell of the tree sap. Here are some of the pictures showing our day:
Thomas was working hard hauling limbs.
Alex's first time using the chainsaw!
This is where the tree limb fell.
Mr. Arend was throwing the branches into a pile.
This is the pile in the woods of tree branches and sticks.
Lots of saw dust!
Archie had a great time snacking on the little twigs!
Archie wanted to play instead of work!
Thats a big pile!
Goodbye Fruit tree!
The big project is all done!
That would pretty much sum up that project! There was only a problem with the fence, the tip of a post fell off they just set it on the top of the post but my dad will have to replace the post. They tried to save it! Other than that it was a very successful project! Good job Mr. Arend, Thomas, Alex and Daddy!
