Lumberjacking Update

The troublesome tree that toppled in front of the porch, nearly taking down the steps railing, has finally been felled.  Known in the trades as a “widow maker,” the unfortunate oak had fallen into one of its siblings.  Wedged tightly, it took some real lumberjacking skill to safely get the beast to the ground.  Many thanks to Bon Bon Pond’s best friend, Jeff, for his skill and steady hand.  Later in the season, the carcass will  be cut, split and stacked for future firewood.  Nothing goes to waste in the country.
