They talk a lot about deforestation in the rain forests. Sure, but what about closer to home?
Steve decided it was time to tackle the aspen tree that is too close to the house. It rubs against the roof when the wind blows, and we lost a couple of shingles over the past winter.
Safety first! Steve has a lovely purple rope tied around his mid-section - I think the other end was tied to the ladder on the back deck. Let's just say I'm glad he didn't need to rely on it. Alex is up on the roof with no rope. Hmm...I'm happy to say they both survived this round with the tree.
