There was a tree on the vacant lot next to us that had fallen onto a tree on our property. We had some really bad wind, but thankfully it wasn’t so bad that the tree fell on our house (we’ve already had that happen once). So after some phone calls were made, Tree Man and his people came to cut down that tree, and another one that Mom had pointed out.
Well, if Mom had not gotten up when she did, one Saw Guy would have cut down the wrong tree. Tree Man was up at the road, fiddling with his phone.
So, multiple other Saw Men showed up and cut down half fallen tree, and the tree that it had fallen on. On top of that, they cut down about six other trees on our property, that Mom had not authorized them to cut.
On top of that, they cut down almost every tree on the vacant lot.
Of course, the people who own that property can do whatever they want with it. Except, we live in a private community, and we have rules. Like, you can’t cut down trees for absolutely no reason. The owners aren’t moving here, or building a house. Tree Man gave them a day rate. A day rate. And they decided to cut down the whole forest.
It’s so bare. We used to have trees, and now we don’t. And to top it all off, they left the mess. Right there. Both our trees and the other peoples’. On our property.
Mom cried when she got home. I was so upset, I cleaned the kitchen.
Our “neighbors” (the people who own the lot) wanted a view of the lake…for their house that they’re not even building.
I know I’ve got better pictures somewhere, but I just can’t seem to find them. Just know, it’s pretty drastic.
All because of one tree. Poor, innocent trees…
