We just got hit by another storm and it split that pecan tree again – well, not really split it but it finished what Friday night’s storm started. There was one great big heavy branch coming from the trunk that got pushed back into the branches above it, keeping it from hitting the ground. The wind cracked the branch that was supporting it so it’s on the ground now but still attached to the tree. Hopefully it’ll make it easier for me to finish the job.
Not only that, but it missed the shed.
From the looks of things all I’ve got to do as soon as the ground dries is cut away all the shit on the ground releasing the spring tension, pull that shit away from the tree with my truck, then I can climb up and cut the branches off at the trunk. Hopefully I’ll survive the ordeal without getting catapulted into Kentucky, then I can just drop the tree.
