    Interesting to watch the tree come down or to watch your dog watching you out the front instead of the forestry work out the back? Cool sequence, and I love those pointy ears.

    Too bad they had to chop a tree that took decades to grow.
    They could have just moved it:

    That's a very interesting article. But they max out at 24" Diameter trees. This tree was about 5 feet diameter. Also I have to pay for it. !!!!

    There has been a pair of morning doves on the garage roof ever since the tree left. I think I took their home. Bummer!

    Understandable. I don't blame you. Plus it looks real close to the structure.

    It's just that it was a living thing.....

    I am surprised that no one pointed out the obvious. The tree could have fallen on Bailey!

    A very important point ! A few very big branches have fallen in the yard. They would have turned Bailey into a decal on a tree.

    1) Kids
    2) Bailey
    3) bikes
    4) everything else.
