We have a dead elm tree in our backyard. We’ve know for almost a year that it was dying, but we put off having it taken down. Procrastinators to the core, we like to wait for near-catastrophic events to happen before we take decisive action.
We bought this house mainly for the big lot and all of the trees on it. This will be the third tree to come down since we moved in. There’s a fourth that will need to be removed before too long. Goodbye, shady yard.
