The Old Ash Tree

It’s sad to see them felling
my neighbours old ash tree,
but the light and space it generates
is almost adequate compensation,
as will be the warmth we get from burning
the wood in our stove this winter.

    We might have to wait a bit before using some of the tree stuff that felled itself.
    Most likely won’t be using the parts that have been soaking in the creek for quite a bit… it we can ever get them out!

    True about the new light patterns when a tree goes down.

    It is always amazing to see the difference the loss of trees can make on a property. I remember strong winds went through my mother’s place years ago. When I returned there to visit and saw the damage, I didn’t even recognize the place. The trees which were such in integral part of my childhood were all gone.

    Our neighbours asked if we minded if it was felled, it overhung our garden and took a lot of light so we are quite OK with it. They intend to plant a replacement of some sort. My husband offered to do the job in return for the wood which they have no use for. We will probably leave it to season for a year before burning, though some of the smaller bits might get used this year.
