Tree Trimming

Now that we have a 2 story house, we have lots of branches that practically scrape against the house.  It is an invitation to problems - everything from broken limbs to squirrels who can easily get into the house (have you ever tried to get rid of a squirrel infestation?  Not fun!  We spent months trying to get them out of a house - and kept finding acorns in odd places for many more months after that!  Try putting on a pair of shoes with acorns in the toe :-)).

So we called the guys from The Greater Portland Tree Company to come out and do a little pruning.  But what we found was a lot more than we bargained for!

As they looked closely at some of the big branches, they discovered that some of them had a lot of rot.

We didn't plan on removing this whole limb, but as you can see, there wasn't a whole lot to it!

The next piece that came down broke into pieces and this old squirrel's next looked like a mini explosion as it hit the ground!

They also removed this extra tall tree stump from the back yard.

The final result - a nicer shaped tree that's in great shape for many more years of shade!!!
