Of all the items on my Spring/Summer to-do list, I can check off only one. It was a biggie though, remove the palm trees that were almost taller than the house and way to close to the roof. They looked nice for a while and the last windstorm messed up the fronds so it was trim or go. I chose go.
It took 3 guys, two trucks, and a lot of effort to get those trees cut down without causing damage.
And now the corner is opened up to let the Bird of Paradise plants grow!
