- It's funny the
amount of guilt I have writing these entries.
Same thing happened when I took the tree down
last year... I want to assure everyone that I'm
an Ohio boy! I love trees! Trees make the
property! Shade! Just awesome!
- These aren't real
fucking trees out here. These are made-up horror
stories. These are trees that drop multiple types of
leaves, ALL-YEAR ROUND. Not sure I can even
fully express how insane the two trees I removed
Thursday and last year were. Like, I'm used to
helicopter leaves back east, right? They suck, but you
could at least RAKE them. What exactly do you do
- The answer? You
don't. You literally have to shop-vac them. Sure you
can rake a few of them, but it's just ridiculous how
LONG they fall, how far they fly and how it's just one
phase of falling as we still have little BALLS of
some shit for the other months and actual LEAVES (that
fall, grow back in a month and then fall again)...
it's comical. And I have searched this entire city and
have NEVER seen this tree or it's droppings
- Now it hardly
effected the golf course but the upkeep was too much.
The problem? Shade. Beautiful shade for the house and
the front yard in the afternoons. It's
JUST starting the hot season here and I'm taking
it down NOW. I went back and forth, but in the end, it
had to be done. At least we have cool DRONE video to
- I actually think
last year's tree video had more drama to it because we
saw it falling down ON us. From a drone
perspective, it just looks kinda simple and pretty.
Interesting. Here's last year's video:
- A LOT more
intense, right? Honestly, it's just because it was
over GolfKon. Heh.
- Alright, so damnit
- I STILL have a few days worth of cleaning to
do. So, on with that. Glad I got to use my drone. Good
