Tree Fellers

Well, there were three of them. 

They arrived this morning at the car park for the apartments behind our house and started unpacking their ropes and chainsaws.

By the time we left to catch the bus to Peel they were well underway. 




This is the new view that greeted us on our return

    1. Well, the tree did block some of the unsightly buildings, but now we can see more of the hills so win some, lose some.

  3. Oh Dear. You could have nicely asked them to hold off until you were ready to move on again.

    1. Oh yes, that would have worked well 😉

  4. One assumes they had good reason for it. Not all things are bad.

    1. We think that a large, heavy branch was resting on the roof of one of the garages so could have caused a collapse.

  5. Hang on. You have just moved away from Peel and already you're pining for the old place.

    1. Just a few loose ends to tie up, YP. Settle a few debts and all that 😏

  7. You've got a clearer view of that building but they have a clearer view of you too.

    1. I shall tell P to make sure he doesn't walk about in the altogether!

  8. At least when the trees were cut here, they left us the tree (sans foliage), and yes we could see things we'd rather not, but at last the foliage is starting to grow back. Give it a year and we might again be screened from the rooftop dogs opposite that bark at any moving thing THEY can see.

    1. There is nothing left of this one except a pile of sawdust.

  9. We had some men in recently to cut down a dead Walnut tree. The one who went up the tree was a small Portuguese man who climbed like a monkey. With just a small hand-held chainsaw, he soon had the whole tree down, and chopped into manageable sized pieces. It was quite an experience. The man had NO FEAR.

    1. Yrs, the one up in the tree was leaping about like a monkey, although he did have a rope and harness.

    2. Sounds like the beginning of an Irish joke "Dere were tree fellers in a pub - De Pope, Cristiano Ronaldo and Dave Northsider. De Pope says 'Begorrah, who's round is it?'. Cristiano says 'I don't drink' and Dave Northsider says 'I'm off to catch me ferry' ". I can't remember how the joke ends but The Pope was not amused.

    3. Or the two blokes looking at a jab ad "Tree Fellers wanted". One of them says "Shame there's only two of us".

    4. Shocked neighbours saw JayCee paying tree fellers for their services... Reminds me of the "four candles" sketch by The Two Ronnies.
