A couple (or was it a few?) weeks ago, Jarrod borrowed a friend's chainsaw, and embarked on the task of chopping down our big cherry tree that had been in our backyard more than 20 years! So it was kind of a big event! He climbed up the tree, and cut the branches off one by one, and then slowly chopped it down to a small stump. The wood was cut up, and we're hoping to sell it for firewood. The very small branches and leaves were thrown into a wood-chipper that we borrowed 2 days afterward, and that was a big task! Here are some pics:
With his axe - I think he's going to chop off a small branch!
It's a big tree!
Look at the ground! (I can't see it!)
That doesn't look very comfortable to me!
What a mess!!
So that was what we did a couple of weeks ago! (Correction: This is what Jarrod, Dad, and Bryce did. The rest of us basically just stood there surveying the work.) :P
