Our neighborhood woke up to these gentlemen buzz-sawing away on a tree across the way. Following modern day journalistic standards, I didn’t bother to find out why they are doing this so I’ll just throw something out there. I’m guessing the tree was a danger to this home. I don’t have the appropriate angle of…… Continue reading the daily felling, 5-26-20
