Nathan recently procured a chainsaw, and we had the perfect opportunity for him to use it on a tree that needed to come down. Our neighbor said it was a mulberry tree. It had lots of scrubby, twisted branches. A few weeks before, Dad, Anna, and Mary started the process by taking a large branch down.
Then, last Saturday, Nathan and his girls came over, and under Dad’s coaching, Nathan cut it down. There’s always an amazing feeling as you watch the tree start to move and then fall. The one thing they really had to be careful of was another small oak tree. They dropped it perfectly, saving the other tree.
Nathan did an excellent job!
