Just two days ago I had some tree work done.

NEPA had an emerald ash Boer infestation this past year almost all of my ash trees that front the land died.

With winter coming they are a threat to power mostly and some could hit structure. My gratitude goes out to the climbers who on the coldest day this winter (23F) with 25 MPH winds climbed (50"+) up trunks to attach lines to fell trees exactly where they wanted them.

I worked in the city at a drawing board, later a computer. Nothing compared to the true grit involved here. What these fellows do I've seen before but remain amazed at the talent involved. Very grateful for their efforts. I can almost smell snow in the air.
