Are you a man or a monkey? We had a tree removed today and although it was pretty exciting, it was also quite sad. It had stood us in good stead casting shade over the patio where we eat in summer. It feels wrong to cut down a living healthy tree but it was the wrong tree in the wrong place and was encroaching on the house, so it had to go. We promised ourselves we will plant another tree soon when we have got used to the new levels of light. Maybe an apple tree?
