As I have mentioned in my previous posts, my sister Chris had so many big trees at her backyard. Last week we had a storm and I am not sure if the rain made the roots weak that caused the cherry tree collapsed. But anyhow, it fell inside my sister's fence and covered most of her backyard.
The funny thing is that due to the incident, my sister found out that she owns more land than she ever thought. So the city did not want to shoulder the cost of cutting the tree as it is in my sister's property. So last Friday, we came over and helped her cut some of the branches. We did not have the right tool to cut the main body of the tree but we cleared up most of the branches.
Here's how it looks like in her backyard before we cut some of the branches.
I took my wife and kids with me but I did not anticipate my wife helping us. I was amazed how she used the ax just fine. She was really good at it actually. Cutting trees is really a good form of extreme exercise. I was thinking that my body would be sore but luckily it didn't. My wife however have a sore back and arms lol.
While we were busy, Fat Boy and Heide were busy too lol. The photos below were taken by our aspiring 5-year old daughter who started to show her interest in photography.
Have a blessed Sunday to all of you.
