We are back from a little vacation and are trying to get back on some sort of schedule. So I was caught off guard this morning when Asplundh pullled up next to the house with their lift and chipper.
Asplundh was here a couple of months ago to “trim” our old pine tree for PECO, so I was pretty surprised to see them back here this morning. They have been here for over an hour “trimming” the tree. I spoke to the supervisor who assured me that they were just going to shear a couple of feet off all the way up. hmmm…I have been back out once since the initial conversation and they are definitely removing branches MORE AGGRESSIVELY then he promised. He discussed trimming straight up but they are definitely angling toward the tree. He also said that the previous tree trimming was just “maintenance” and this group is the one that comes every 5 years to actually “trim” the tree. hmmmm…. So far I have managed to not swear in front of the kids. Sam wants to stand out there and watch the whole thing. It was making me sick to my stomach so we came back in. What a great way to come back to the real world!
