Tree Felling Dad

Greeting loyal readers and fellow maremmas.   Now as you all know it is summer time here in the sunny Mangamahu Valley.  Even so, mummy and daddy’s thoughts are already turning to the eventual arrival of winter.  Out in the front paddock were three dead silver birch trees.  Ideal for firewood, however, they needed to come down and be cut up for firewood.

With a lot of cursing and muttering discussion, daddy formulated his plan to cut the trees down.  Mummy says it sounded very complicated, but the end result was three trees down, all going the right way.  If, they had fallen the other way, the result would have been the loss of power to parts of the valley and a claim on their public liability insurance.

Would you like to see some photos of daddy’s battle with the trees?   Of course, you do.

    Great shots, J. I’m sure your daddy appreciated your support while he was beating those trees into submission. It will make snoozing in front of the fire all the more cozy this winter.

    Love and licks,
    Cupcake

    Attacking poor defenseless trees? Now where are the birds going to perch????

  6. You Dad works very hard. Mine sits in front of a computer, mostly. That’s why I make him get up a lot when I am home with him – giving him some exercise, BOL!

    Plenty of wood to keep everyone warm in the winter. I’m sure you two weren’t sleeping under the shady tree, you were “supervising” under the shady tree! 😉
