Tree inspection

March 28, 2012

I walked around my acreage and inspected our trees. Some of the walnut trees are 100 years old. Other trees are just babies. My ornamental pear has a chunk of bark stripped off from deer. One evergreen I planted four years ago is dead. I need to find out why. An older tree in the grove, a spindly one that leaned, broke and fell into the branches of another tree (below). If they both come down, they will destroy my nice vinyl fence. Another old tree in the pasture lane (bottom) is hollow and needs to be cut down before it falls on the sheep. When you can see through the trunk of a tree it’s time to remove it!

Have you checked your trees?
