Another Day, Another Tree

Today we tackled the tree-of-heaven that grows along the fence opposite our front door.

Another Tree for the Chop

It's been useful shade during the summer, but it's time for these leaves and branches to go.

Tree Trimming

The first time I cut one of these trees back this far, I was sure it would kill it, but tree-of-heaven is stubborn, and next spring I expect it to sprout lots of new branches and leaves, but I hope not many seed pods.

The brush pile is growing bigger by the day. I'm glad I put the pile well away from the fence.
