While some advised taking down the majestic sugar maples at the back of the property, we are grateful for all that they provide -- cooling shade in the heat of summer, a colorful show in autumn, and then a kind release of leaves to let in the warming winter sun. It is because of these very trees that a super-insulated house built here will require significantly less energy to heat and cool. Working with Mother Nature is a beautiful thing.
Today the left tree got a haircut.
The guys at Bark Busters of Weston were terrific.
We also mapped out a protection plan for construction to ensure that we don't disturb the shallow roots of these beauties.
