Thursday 20 January 2011: Men at Work
There were two very large weeping willows in the park close by me, which had been there for 'yonks'. We had some very strong winds, I think it was over the Xmas period, and some very large branches in the middle of these trees were broken, and they covered the creek bed, and made the trees mis-shapen.
Now the workmen are working at taking the trees out all together.
As they take the branches down they put them through 'The Muncher'.
I am amazed at how big the branches are that they put into the 'eating' machine.
All but the very biggest. You can see the workman in the middle has a pretty hefty branch, and I saw bigger ones than this going is as well.
It will never be the same without those huge tees.
