The government says Stewart is a senior citizen but no one from the Social Security Administration has watched him climb a tree.
This tall spruce was 100% dead and leaning toward the cabin. It’s always sad to lose a big tree like this one but I take heart from all the young ones coming up in the clearing nearby. (You can see some in the foreground of the photo above.)
The goal was to drop the dead tree without hitting—in order of priority—either one of us, the cabin, the stand of healthy spruce at the bottom of the clearing, the picnic table.
Here’s a time-lapse video to show how that went . . .
Beautiful trees and picnic table intact . . .
Plus firewood for summers to come . . .
