One nice thing about living in and old house
Mr. Sechler who built Linderhof in 1920
planted two trees out front
On the left (you just see the leaves)
is an Elm
On the right is a Hackberry
They grew into big and beautiful trees
Giving us nice shade in summer
And lots of leaves to rake up in fall!
And then when we thought 2020 had left . . .
Jim and I both hear a crack and a swoosh at 5 a.m.
on January 1
The hackberry came down
On the house!
It split in two!
Big branches on the side of the house
(for it was a tall tree)
And even bigger branches across the drive
Seeing the tree down in the drive
we thought, perhaps, 2020 hadn't left yet!
But never fear, Miller's Tree Service came to our rescue
They cleaned up the branches littering the north drive
Then they started taking down the half a tree that was left
All the way down!
And left a big stump because they had another job.
They came back and got the rest of the stump. This spring they'll grind out what's left
It certainly looks different than it did . . . looks more like the 1924 picture. We'll plant a tree in it's place -- not for us but for those who own Linderhof after us. I'm thinking a pretty maple. For neither the elm nor the hackberry were pretty trees.
Eerily, the above picture in black and white bears a striking resemblence to the first picture in this post . . . What's new is old again!
What lovely trees. Glad you had good help. Still, it's quite a loss.
P.S. It's rreally good to hear from you!
Hard to lose a tree but glad your house was spared too much damage. Yes, plant another tree. It will give you great joy even while it is small.
I am so very sorry that your big tree fell on your house. How scary that must have been. We lost a big tree over the summer. We have since planted a new one; but as you say it will be enjoyed someday by the next owners of this house. We planted a Maple Tree. We hope to at least be able to enjoy the pretty colors of the leaves in the Fall.
Just glad no one was hurt! We had a huge old Hackberry that was very close to the house. One morning a wind sheer came through and the tree just fell over roots & all. It was so weird! Luckily, it fell away from the house and just clipped the corner of the laundry room with not too much damage.
