Old trees

We have many beautiful old maples on our property. They line our driveway on both sides and there are two on the opposite side of my house. We came home after meeting yesterday to find that one huge branch had somehow been broken off and was lying across part of the driveway! It had fallen off a high part of the tree, and was actually part of the main trunk that branched off at the top. It left some pretty big gouges in the ground.

I figured that we would cut it up with the chainsaw and burn it in our fire pit, but G had other plans to impress his sons. (and his wife!). No sissy chainsaw for him, he lifted that giant, heavy maple log and CARRIED it over to the burning pit!
