Remember this tree?
My dear Roger worked for a LONG TIME yesterday, carefully trimming branches from this tree, and guess what? It's gone.
Now, in the grand scheme of things, it's just a tree. I know that. I'm also aware that people desperately need wood for heating their homes. We were planning to give the wood to some friends, to burn in THEIR fireplace. So, yeah. It's not life or death.
BUT STILL...the fact is, someone did this without asking. Someone took it upon themselves (his or herself?) to trespass, cut up the log, and take it without asking. They also left behind the ginormous stump. To top if off? My husband had already done the difficult, unpleasant work of de-limbing the tree, hauling the brush, and piling the debris. He is REALLY mad. (And before you ask, our friends had not come to collect it. They won't be destitute, so yeah, I know...it's just a tree.) But this man, well - would you mess with him? If you have his tree, you owe him $100 for the ricks of wood and labor. Cash only.
