Expert tree trimming around our home in Fearrington Village

Trees grow tall around here. Reaching for the light, they often grow to hang over drives and the houses themselves. We just had Tyndall Tree Services trim tree branches that presented potential safety hazards. Here are some photos of these professionals in action.
The Tyndal crew arrived with state of art equipment and set up in the drive
They can clime up trees to cut protruding branches
They employ an amazing extension  arm and bucket to reach branches way up
They employed a block and tackle to direct cut branches, protecting our Crape Myrtle below
Everything was shredded and our yard was cleaned up
Here is Allen Tyndall and his fabulous crew along with my sculpture Serene Moment

Early morning hike along Creekwood Trail with my bud Dominic

My young friend Dominic joined Stanley and me for a walk before breakfast along Creekwood Trail to the pond. It was a hot day in July, so we took our walk very early. The walk to and from the pond is about 3 miles. Here are some cool photos.

Watch out Dominic!
