The township came for some trees. -_-

Poor little woodpecker still pecking away like nothing happened... :s

Bastards. It wasn't in great shape but it still had green leaves in places...but apparently this tree was not on our property (which is why I couldn't throw them off the property) because it's only 'x' amount of feet from the road.

-_-

And they got all the neighbours, too.

So, so depressing. These trees still made so much shade (and privacy) and they always had birds all over them. I was a basketcase all day...I still feel dehydrated. The whole time I was talking to the foreman (? The guy clearly in charge) I had tears streaming down my face like a pipe had broken in my head (no sobbing or hitching, just a river of water from my face, I couldn't stop it) and he was so, so nice. I will say that. He was so apologetic and explained how it was a safety issue (not a lie, I realize) and when I said I understood but lots of birds still have nests in it he looked like he wanted to cry, too. I got to him, for sure. I wonder if anyone has ever wept uncontrollably to him over losing a tree before (he was a bit older, mid 50s maybe).

*deep breath*

My guy said he will plant any type of new trees I want to balance this out...bless him. I'm thinking apple trees, so we can enjoy real apples that aren't pumped full of strange chemicals (apparently apples and grapes are the worst for this, which is sad and insane but anyway) and they grow relatively quickly, too. If we plant semi dwarf ones we'll have apples in just three years.
