Today we put in a call to the SES for help removing the tree from our roof
Three lovely men turned up. Took stock of the situation and said.
I’m sorry. But we cannot help your going to need a cherry picker to get that off
So we did what most country folk do
We improvise and got the job done ourselves
The forklift and our metal crate was used to lift hubby into the canopy and clear the loose stuff away
Then our lovely neighbour, Chris, said he had an electric saw with a long handle. Which would be much safer to use than a regular
Chain saw as you don’t have to be right under the branch
So Chris went to town and was hacking off branches while we removed them to keep the work area safe
Then my lovey wonderful niece stopped by to make sure I was ok and offered the use of her boyfriend as he is a roof tiler
So she went home and came back with him. He got onto the roof and removed the branches and checked for damage
There were only two Broken tiles!
Wondersons friend Micheal was here so he went home to get two tiles as he remembered there were a few in the back yard and within ten minutes they
The mess was all cleared and currently the boys are now taking down what’s left of the tree
I’m upset at losing that tree it’s been here since the day we moved in but it’s so brittle it needs to go
So in the end. Everyone chipped in and the job got done
In the next few weeks the branches will be cut up and put aside to dry and will hopefully be ready to burn in a few winters
This is the Aussie way!
Jump in and get it done
See ya xxx
