This tree was the one I was most worried about. It could have fallen across the road. It wasn't dead at the beginning of the summer...but it was almost dead. The guy used a bucket and dropped the pieces so that nothing was hurt. My rose strip running parallel to the road wasn't damaged at all.
This flagstone was the only thing that was hurt. Larry took the birdbath off of it and just left the stone.
This tree has been there for a while because we couldn't figure out how to get it off the little building.
This is the truck with the bucket. It has a holder for his chainsaw outside the bucket. The controls for the bucket are inside the bucket. I thought he'd need somebody inside the truck to move it, but not.
He tied a rope around that tree and ran the rope under the tree we wanted off the little building. As he sliced pieces off the leaning trunk, it got lighter and eventually stood itself back up in the hole the roots had made.
This one was beside the driveway and just the top of it was dead. So he took the top out.
I really thought he was going to be standing looking at something destroyed saying, "I didn't mean for it to do that," but he was really good!
