We're finally seeing the end of the pecan tree. Chain-saw woes set us back for a while. Hot weather slows us down. Old people don't spend long periods out in the sun. A little work, a rest and iced tea, a little more work, more tea.
I'm not much help but somebody has to stand by
when an old fellow is using a chain saw.
at the point where you would put your arms around a tree,
this one measured 115 inches around.
The two remaining pecan trees seem to be in fair shape for their age,
kind of like He-Who-Mows and myself.
The green mound at left is the big fig tree.
The green in the distance is corn planted by Farmer Danny.
The center of the main trunk was hollow but the pieces are still very heavy.
I have more videos. How much sawing and hauling did you want to see?
All that remains is the big trunk which has to be sawed in half before the
tractor can pick it up. Rain ran us in. We had 0.2 inch of most welcome rain.
