Most of the yard is raked. Today we removed several dead cedar trees on the property line. Our neighbors were kind enough to help move the trees and help pull them down. Here is the lumber pile.
It went well, one tree did give a bit of trouble coming down and was tangled in the maple next to it. As you can see my DH he had a close call with the chainsaw cutting his brand new jeans, as he was running out of the way!! He didn't realize how close it was until after we were finished.
The stump shown is rotten down 3 feet below the top. The stumps will be dealt with later. Our neighbors were so happy no dead trees will fall on them now. They may even extent the privacy fence for a dog they may be getting in the future.
Ahh spring, it rained the afternoon and the green things are growing rapidly.
