I am so glad he knows what he is doing. He! He!

We have a willow tree in our backyard that has become a nuisance. Maybe not so much for us, but for our neighbors. The shallow roots have interfered with their new pool. They tried to remedy the problem by applying root killer to the offending roots. In the process, it partially killed the tree. The neighbors felt bad. The solution was to remove the tree. I decided to document the event. Please note that my husband is a scientist not an engineer.

I am glad the fence was there, or we might have been making a trip to the hospital! The goal of this project was to keep the tree in OUR yard.

So, if you have a tree that needs removed and want some help--- call someone else!

That was pretty entertaining. I'll be sure to call someone else if we ever need some tree removal. :)

Mattie came to get me to watch the Bishop trying to be Justin "Timber"Lake. This is a classic video. I think Youtube worthy. I am going to get Ed to watch this too. He'll probably even make a comment. Just hearing the buzzing of the saw was making me laugh. And you laughing didn't help. Poor Bishop. Its all on tape. We still got your back. Just watch out for those trees.

scott is going to love this. I thought about you guys while we were laying on the couch over looking the lake at the cabin watching conference. Next conference we will have to kidnap your husband and make him go with us! that will be the only weekend he could skip out of town for a minute! We missed the cini rolls and m&m's.

That was So funny! My kids loved to see the tree fall the "wrong way!" You guys are troopers for taking on such a project!

I agree that you should put it on youtube, it will get some laughs for sure. My husband and kids sure enjoyed watching the tree fall the wrong way. Glad no one was hurt!

Scientists are the creators not killers .I think he can rebuild the tree in other location where every one wants that.
What an idea it is, to document this event .Please post this documentary in YOU TUBE.
I think it will get the Best Documentary of the Year award. Similar to that I found while browsing some more information which may help you in willow tree.

That was so funny! Is it all done now? I told you Mick would be more than willing to help you with yard projects. He really does enjoy working outside. Give him a call! I'll even send 4 more boys to help!! (The chainsaw makes me nervous!!!)
