I mentioned a post or so ago that Papa Pea has been doing a reorganizing and rearranging of our poultry yard.
For years we've had an apple tree in that area that has been on its last legs. (Last branches? Last roots?) At any rate, we decided it would be best to take it out, get it out of the way.
When D, our good neighbor, brought us a load of fill to even out an area that Papa Pea's been working on, they discussed the tree and D said he could come over with a piece of his equipment and pop it out, roots and all, if we wanted.
You bet! And that he did.
For an older, smaller tree that was half dead, it had quite the root system and we shuddered to think how long it would have taken us to grub it out.
Up, up and away with the gnarly old thing.
D even took the tree away with him. Can't beat that kind of help!
