Bit by bit it was dropped to the ground and
fed to the noisy mulcher.
Our house is the green roof in the front left hand corner of the photo. We are on the other side of the road, but if that tree had fallen during a storm it would have torn down the power lines and could have possibly hit our roof, so we are glad to see it go.
It was a lovely tree once but recently it got attacked by termites and was dying. It took them all day to get most of it down.
The following day they had to return to get the biggest part of the trunk down. This looked awfully dangerous. One guy sawing and the others pulling it towards them.
They knew what they were doing and all were safe and no fences damaged. Now we will be safer if a cyclone comes but I hope we don't get one. They don't usually come this far south, but weather hasn't been usual this year.
