Timberrrrrrrr!

Our neighborhood lost yet another elm tree last week. This is one I just photographed in full color this year with my maple. It's been 10 years since the elm on my boulevard was cut down. I cried that day.
But I was more prepared for this one. The red ring was painted on its trunk months ago. Besides that, it's not "my" tree, although it's right next door.

It went quickly. The front-loader (first photo) was tied to the tree so it fell in the street as was planned. It felt like an earthquake when it fell! I went into the next room to check on the cats - they were sitting up wide-eyed, but pretty calm.
