A Great Tree Falls

Keys Energy Services was on the corner of Thomas and Truman today to finish taking down the big tree that has stood on that corner for as long as we've been coming here and, no doubt, for many, many years before that. Parts of the tree were cut down last week. Today's work was like performing microsurgery. The man in the bucket of the truck moved himself around the utility wires and over the roof of the house to cut pieces small enough to grab in his hand and drop them to the ground.

When I returned later in the day, what was left was the trunk as you see it here.

The removal is part of the planned reconstruction of the intersection and the need to comply with the requirements of ADA.
