There were these tree fellers...

Sadly the demi-tree outside our house has stopped being a carbon sink and now lies as logs in the back garden.

As you can see from the following pictures, the tree has slowly been moving towards the horizontal from the vertical for a while. The worry was that we would come home one day to find roots and earth where our front door used to be so the tree had to go.

The sharp-eyed may notice that the tree seems to have received some surgery in the past. Years ago when we moved in, there was a large branch with a lot of growth on it which blocked the view of the doorway from passers-by, as well as cutting out light. It was felt that a gloomy, concealed doorway was not ideal and the saw came out. The whole tree would have gone if I hadn't stepped in when it obvious only the big branch was causing the problem. So, if we had left the branch still attached, the much heavier tree would have moved sideways much earlier and be gone long before now.
