Tree R.I.P.

From the back yard.

Our lovely desert willow, which has provided us with a lot of shade over the past years, has to go.   The stump has started to damage the house.  I went out this morning and took some photos, knowing she’d be gone later today.  There’s a crew working out there right now.   Boo hoo.

From the hillside.

It’s always about ten degrees cooler under there.

This is why it has to go.  It has grown over the air conditioner and is breaking the wall of the access to the crawlspace.    Later I’ll take photos of the new view.  😦

    It’s so bare back there, you’ll be shocked. When J&G came up for a visit for the first time over the weekend, they didn’t even know to miss the tree.
