Down With the Maple

This is a sad situation, but the maple behind our house had to go. It was good because the builder had to pay to have it taken out. The county said it was too close to the house, and it was, but it was a beautiful tree. Watching the destruction of it was pretty absorbing. You might enjoy watching this video.

Here's the "before" view from our kitchen door.

Goodbye tree!

Here's another video that shows how they clean up the tree after it is pushed over.


  1. Cool machine! To bad for the tree :(

  2. The machines almost look like living beings.
