We had 6 trees removed from our lot (3 in front and 3 in back). Not sure if it's blog-worthy, but we sure had fun watching the chaos of 6 men cutting 50 foot trees down with just a chain saw and some ropes. It was actually pretty incredible to see. The house shook when the massive trees hit the lawn. Part of me felt guilty cutting them down, but overall I know our house is a safer place and it's something I can check off my list to worry about.
