Clearing up after the storm damage

We cleared as much of the tree that was damaged in the weekend storms as we could, however, our chainsaw wasn’t really up to the job.

Chris LeRoy kindly dropped by today to sort out the bigger parts of the tree that were still standing.

My 14 inch chainsaw just wasn't man enough to deal with this tree.  Chris LeRoy - our local tree surgeon - happily (and very carefully) dealt with what was left.  He logged all of the big wood for us so that it can be easily chopped into logs for the fire.

This just needs to be split and stored for the next 9-12 months before we can burn it on the log fires!  It looks as if it was an old apple tree.  However, in the last couple of years we have seen no fruit on it.
