I love my 2 Pin Oaks out front. I’ll die before they come down OR kill someone if they try! Both transplants from woods behind me, 30+yrs and they are mine! Even fought my neighbor for the first, he said “I found it first”! No, u were 30feet off,there’s yours! Can never really trust the Army,lol.Here we go again . . . Hold my beer ( x2 ) . . . and watch this . . .
Oh boy . . . I'm a bit sore today after the days adventures . . .
With 1 tree down, there's only 4 more that need to come down . . . yeah . . . Only . . . ( ugh )
No better time than the present . . . so I set forth on a task today . . . Cedar tree # 2 . . . Hold my beer . . .

Nah, he's "inspecting" them to be sure you are doing an adequate job - can't just expect him to check just one out!He's also "helping" . . . yeah right . . . he grabs a cut limb, runs out on the grass, chews on it for 5-10 minutes . . .
Then he's back in the stack grabbing another one (guess who gets to go pick them all up after the fact - AGAIN)
