This is my view this morning with all of the trees removed. My neighbors moved in just a couple months after we moved here in 1972. We raised all of our children and have adult grandchildren now. The neighbors are very nature oriented but as we become elderly people, we worry about something on our property harming someone else, and that's why the trees needed to come down. I still have my 5 redbuds, a maple and a juniper so in the spring it won't look this bare. We will plant a couple new trees.
It took them less than 5 minutes to fell it and haul all of it around to the back and to their chipper.
