I Love the Sound of Tree Death

Well, normally I don’t. But this time, I’m making an exception.

The neighbors are taking down the large oak tree at the corner of their property, which shares a corner of our backyard. A few years ago, the neighbors trimmed the blasted thing and had a lot of the dead branches removed. I guess they were trying to save it but it didn’t work apparently. So today, the tree is coming down.

To which I say, “Good damn riddance.”

Now, I love trees. They are awesome. But this one in particular? It loved to throw branches on our roof and in our backyard every single time we got a semi-strong thunderstorm. There were times I could hear the impacts on the roof of our garage and I was actually afraid that I’d walk outside and see the damn branch piercing the shingles. There were a few times when I thought that might have actually happened but it didn’t. So I’ll never have to worry about that garbage ever again.

I’m not adverse to the idea of maybe getting another tree in that spot. Maybe a nice cherry tree? You know, something that won’t get so blasted tall? Because I think I’ve had my fill of the taller ones for now.

 

About Silverwynde

I'm a Transformers fan, Pokémon player, Brewers fan and all-out general nerd. I rescue abandoned Golett, collect as many Bumblebee decoys and figures as I can find and I've attended every BotCon since 1999. I'm also happily married to a fellow Transfan named Prime and we were both owned by a very intelligent half-Siamese cat, who crossed the Rainbow Bridge on June 16, 2018. We still miss him. But we're now the acting staff of a Maine Coon kitty named Lulu, who pretty much rules the house. Not that we're complaining about that.
