The big tree was taken down some years ago but the stump was not ground down. This other tree started growing and looks like a mess. Mark got out there with the chain saw his mom gave us (she must have known we would need it :-) ) and cut it down. Now we have to load it on the truck with the other yard waste and take it to the dump tomorrow. Truck load #5! We have 10 more trees we would like to have removed. Two will cost us $1100 and the other $1800. This is being added to our future wish list. Until then, we can trim the branches back and keep them away from the house!
