Tree Trimming by Adam Scissorhands..

This house is affectionately known as 'The Cedars'. It could have something to do with the giant Cedar trees found around here. Just a guess.
Anyway, the cedars have grown a little out of control and when a wicked wind storm bent one of the cedars (where Adam is) over and threatened my gorgeous hydrangea tree I decided our house was getting a trim NOW.  See the cedars on the right hand side?? The ones on the left were just as tall. I tell y'a, when that wind comes it bends those trees like a.....bendy straw??

So up onto the tractor loader my husband went with chainsaw in hand.  He hates it when I take pictures of him doing work around the house. I on the other hand get A LOT of amusement out of it.
When it came to the cedars on the left we were not sure how far down to trim them. We figured we would take just a little off the top.....
I can't tell you how hard I was laughing while taking this next picture. 


I think we should have left it just like that for a while, but there ALWAYS seem to be someone watching you around here...

been trying to trim trees around here too. 2 giant trees in our little backyard...my gardens have become deep shade and no one wants to hang out back there, except the mosquitos. by 10 am they are in full force! unfortunately we don't have a front loader to reach up so high.....our trees definitely look somewhat deformed now.
But my man got to use a power tool, and I gotta admit, he's kind of sexy that way. LOL
