Above you see what was left of a bradford pear tree in our front yard. Unfortunately the tree could not be saved and had to be professionally removed.
The tree service was very professional and came out and had the tree down, cleaned up and even raked the front yard all in about 40 minutes. The saddest part was seeing and knowing that about 3 birds nests were also destroyed. We have neighbors with fire places and the service was nice enough to cut up the larger pieces so they can have the wood.
Hopefully in the spring we will have the stump removed and redo the existing flower bed as well as plant a new (hopefully stronger) tree. My eyes filled with tears as the last of the tree was removed.
The front of our home looks well — so barren. I am so blessed and thankful that the tree wasn’t any taller. If that had been the case the roof, siding or even bedroom windows would have been damaged or destroyed. If the tree had landed any other place in the yard, it would have damaged our cars, the mailbox or even the brand new walk way to the front door.
