We had lots of help on Saturday, even in the misty rain, to clean up the beech tree.
Jeff’s brother, John, saved the day with his Extremely Large chain saw……
And our neighbor Al(but we all call him Sonny), helped all afternoon too….
They cut the trunk in about 8 foot lengths, as Jeff would like to mill it into boards, and eventually make an octagon table for the gazebo….with matching chairs.
That’s where our son-in-law, Derek, comes in….(he was here helping with the clean up too)….as he is the wood working artist of the family…and will make something awesome with this wood!
So the tree that lived so long, was gone in an afternoon….
But, left its offspring….Sonny….to carry on.
