Trees Be Gone!

5 Jul

This week we got two large and messy gum trees chopped down.

These trees were located very close to our house (and power lines) and were causing us constant problems (like a branch falling down and denting my car!).

These trees were very tall!  It took 4 men, four hours to cut the two trees down and mulch them all up.

I am looking forward to the weekend when I will no longer need to sweep up the leaves and sticks from our deck, side path, tank stand and gutters! (well this weekend we have to clean out the gutters, but hopefully now these trees are gone they won’t fill up as quickly!)  I do feel a little sorry for the possums that will no longer be able to run across our roof every night.

Thank you PJ Tree Services (from Toowoomba) for clearing away our trees.

Now that these two trees are out of the way we can order our new water tank (my husband wouldn’t let me order one until the trees were cut down).

Enjoy what’s left of the QLD school holidays.

Today I am linking up with FLOG YOUR BLOG FRIDAY

    YAY for getting rid of them ! When we moved into our home we landed up cutting down about 11 palms down the side of the house – for about 10yrs afterwards we were still finding roots in pipes and causing trouble for us 😦
    Have a great weekend and YAY for a water tank – we have 4 and they really do make a difference – we use them to fill the pool and when we use the karcher and water the garden.

    Wow. We have a similar tree that is beautiful, but very naughty and causes lots of problems. I would never do that blokes job.

    Wow, that’s a huge tree! The one time we had a tree removed (not as big as that one though) and it felt so weird afterwards, like a big huge space, and even the light coming in the windows was different, it was bizarre!

    It’s sad to see trees having to be cut down but they can do so much damage – as you and your car found out! Hope you enjoy the new view and increased light!

      We think we have a tree root in the toilet pipe!! So now hopefully the tree is gone it won’t cause us any more problems!
