Timberrrrrrrr!

We've had the tree-loppers in again. Before you get all tree-huggy on me let me tell you we've got a bunch of trees all over the block so it's not like we can't manage without one or two. Especially one that's right at the corner of the house and leans slightly in its direction.


First off, it's a fire hazard. Common thought is that there should be no foliage within 20metres of the house. We haven't quite managed that but by the end of all this work we will have cleared the trees from the direct circuit of the house.


Second, while it was in no danger of falling over anytime soon... anything that leans towards the house rather than away from it is always worrying.



And third? Well, it's where the new carport is going to go. Yeah baby, I'm getting carport that's attached to the house!

Yes, best to clear trees, especially ones that lean towards your house! And they can be a fire hazard, so don't feel guilty. Did you keep the timber?

We kept what was good - it's stacked in the woodshed drying out for winter 2011.
