Today we removed a large Douglas Fir because it had HUGE surface roots that had reached our house foundation. It was just a matter of time before it broke through the foundation.
It was planted by a non-gardening neighbour ten feet from our house about 35 years ago. We received permission from the town to remove it.
We had a dying birch in the back yard that needs to be removed. It was dropping whole dead branches constantly.
The rest of the work today has been final hedge trimming and sculpting and reining things in.

Next weekend we will plant the last Apple Tree and an almond tree. Yes we can grow almonds here!!
A very special thank you to Scotty Tree service. They are amazing and fun to deal with. Thank you guys!!
Oh I was so excited to see this!! Awesome Erin...what a day you must have had. Sad to see such a magnificent Douglas Fir gone but it really was in the wrong place. Now do I understand...from the photos...the hedge goes along two sides of your property? Someday I will see it for myself!
It was a crazy weekend. I am achy all over. The hedge is over 100' long. There are two neighbours back there so it looks like a corner but actually it's just hedge at the back. I cannot wait to show you everything. You have been there since the beginning and shared so much of your knowledge. For example...your insistence that Ballerina Tulips are the most beautiful of all. I planted a ring of them around my Japanese Maple. They are in full bloom and truly are the most beautiful I've ever seen. My neighbour even came over to see them and loved them. Thank you again!!
Oh Alison...wait until you see how bright it is.
