I thought we were all supposed to be hugging trees, not cutting them down. Why did it have to go?
One of 'em was already dead and the other one had a terrible disease & was well on its way...
There are times when trees have to be put to rest. Then you can use the wood for something good, like building a fire this winter when it is cold and snowing up there.
Or sometimes....they just have to go...you cannot save them all.
