About My Trees

A couple (at least, if not more) of my friends seem to be concerned about my trees that were cut back. They were giant maple trees in my front yard, with long limbs that could fall on my roof and damage the house. The tree company worked for at least two hours on the two front trees, and they were working very hard. I thought I would try to show you some better pictures and some in my neighborhood. They assured me that the trees will grow back. Many of my neighbors also wanted them to do work for them.

Hopefully, these pictures look a little better than the other ones I posted. It is nice not to have limbs falling all over my yard. I know I should have trimmed them all along, but I really could not afford to.

These are my next door neighbor's smaller trees than mine. She is a perfectionist when it comes to her yard, and it usually looks beautiful.

This is one of her crepe myrtle bushes. Each year I think it is terrible that she has cut them down like this, but believe me, they do grow back to be pretty bushes.

This is my neighbor's tree that was cut awhile back. It doesn't look so great now, but you can see how the limbs have grown back.

I thought I would close with some things of beauty. It was not that dark outside, but the moon was so lovely, I had to take pictures of it.

Thanks for looking at my pictures.

That type of pruning is not called pruning where I live. It's called Hatracking and it's against the law. Even though the trees and bushes grow back, they are not as stable as those that have been properly pruned. Goggle pruning trees and see the difference.

Please note: I am informing, not scolding.

I love the picture of the moon! I can never seem to get good ones like that.
Trees always look pretty bad when first trimmed, but they come back much nicer.

Very nice, Cathy. I love the moon photos.

We have had such a severe winter here that there will be much pruning when the threat of frost is over. How wonderful it is, though, that pruning usually brings healthier plants and trees.

Your trees will grow back and be more beautiful than before. It is kind of like our lives. When we are pruned, we grow in faith like never before. I love the picture of the moon behind the tree. Good job!
