Home ~ After the Double Pine Tree Removal & Moving Mulch, I planted a Tree, 04/07

This was Saturday, April 7, 2018, Lia’s 18th Birthday.

It’s a Yoshino Flowering Cherry Tree and is in the southwest corner of the backyard. It will be easy to recall when I planted it–my oldest granddaughter’s 18th Birthday. Happy Birthday Lia Iman Artis.

The mulch [38 wheelbarrow loads] is from the two pine trees removed from the front yard March 29, 2018.

Home ~ More Twisted & Tangled Root Removal [04/02 – 04/06] following the Double Pine Tree Removal

Trees are beautiful, but???

I thought hauling 38 loads of mulch over two days was laborious [and it was]. Removing all the roots I did over 5 days was much, much more so. I do not see I will have to do this again and I am GLAD! At least I now have the potential for a smooth lawn–stay tuned…

Twisted & Tangled

Many of these were very difficult to dig out–an all day job. I expect one more day, then I have to work on the lawn. Getting it level will be a challenge.

Except for reseeding the lawn…

Thirty-eight full wheelbarrow loads later and all the mulch is moved. The trees were removed last Thursday, 03/29 [five-minute and twelve-minute timelapse of the removal].
