    I think you made the right decision with regards to your tree. It was a safety issue. With so many trees being torn out around Southwestern Ontario for commercial purposes, its nice to realize that some people actually struggle with the decision before acting.
    By the way……..love your blog. Nice to have a fellow Ontarian celebrity to follow and enjoy. Great job!

    It’s always sad to see a huge tree come down, but not all trees are meant to live forever. Some do have a “shelf life” and it’s good for nature to have an old tree removed to let the newer generation space and light to grow.

    I loved the “timber” after it was down! lol

    You did the right thing. During hurricane Sandy a tree (not even very large) fell through the roof of our neighbors house. Their son 29/30 years old was killed in his bed. Also, just a limb fell from another tree in the park near us killing a pregnant woman. So as much as we love nature we have to also consider self (and neighbor) preservation.

    Too heck with what other people say! Peace of mind & safety for you & anyone else around is more important! You did the right thing!

    You did the right thing taking down this tree. We had to take down a tree that threatened our house and planted 2 to replace it. I wish our neighbor would cut down theirs. It has been hit by lightening and half of it hangs in our yard with dead branches dangling way up high. A tree is not worth the safety of people. You can replace a tree, not so with people.

    You did the right thing. The tree was obviously dying. I am having the same problem with a big oak in my yard. No matter which way it falls, it will hit someone’s house. Three tree companies have refused the job. It is scary.

    Good choice to remove the tree. We only have 3 trees in our yard all planted by my husband and I but our neighbors have had had to remove 2 very tall Pine trees that not only threatened their home but ours and were infested with carpenter ants. Now we all breath better during our wind storms and the threat of damage from the trees and the ants are now a thing of the past. Plant a new tree in it’s place. 🙂

    You’ll see that your yard takes on a whole new personality now that the threat of the tree is gone. Good decision.

    Wow, we are having 2 trees removed today for the same reason. And 3 trees cut back and down. But then we are planting a new tree also. Thank God there are professionals that do this for us.

    I would do the same. In fact, we did do it several years ago. We had two trees about 50 feet tall. Very old trees. One was really leaning over towards our house, so we just decided to take both down. They were both on the property line and neighbor didn’t want to help us with the cost. Well, after all it wasn’t threatening her house but ours. A few years went past (after those trees were cut down) and a medium size tree (on our neighbors property) came crashing down on her front yard on a stormy night. Well, I’m not happy that happened to her, but I’m sure those missing trees came to her mind. They would have come down for sure since they were old, taller, and heavier trees. So glad we did what we did.

    I know how you feel about having to cut a tree down, we’ve had to remove 4 over the last few years.

    Safety first! I moved into a house a few years ago that had a huge pine tree the former owners had left to grow too close to the house. Its lower limbs rested on top of the roof; I had it removed but had about six feet left standing and used it to hang bird feeders.

    I know how you feel. It’s sad to see another of the old ones having to be cut down. But if you plant a new, smaller one in it’s place, then you will not have lost it completely. Now you and your neighbours can breath easier knowing there is not a potential of damage from this tree.
    I really enjoy reading your posts on crochet. I’ve been doing it most of my life. It’s great when people post the things they make. So what memorial are you going to crochet for this tree? lol.
    Happy Crochet to you.

    I am glad you took the tree down. I would be very sad if it squashed my favorite crochet guys.
    Rule of thumb, plant trees no closer than 25 feet from buildings. Love you guys.

    I think you guys made the right decision. Now you can relax. It isn’t like you cut down the last tree on earth. I hate to cut trees down too, but when they are a safety concern, you have to make the right choice.
