We had some trees taken down. Here are some before and after pics.
It is always interesting to me to feel the loss or absence of the life that filled a certain space with the presence of a tree.
Their still and constant presence is so often taken for granted, and yet they define so much of our world. When gone, they leave a hole, open space, and more light. Birds and squirrels grieve more than we do, as they are most directly effected. Yet we, too, are effected, perhaps in more subtle ways but still our world changes with the loss of any limb or entirety of a tree.
