Yard Makeover! First the trees…

We started our yard makeover with a visit from an arborist – Mike at Arbor 1 here in Bend. He and his business partner spent the day dangling from our trees, frightening the little squirrel family who had taken up residence in a giant juniper tree, cutting away dead branches, removing diseased and non-thriving trees (about a dozen of them) and generally improving the whole look of our yard. Improving, but making it look very, very bare.

Men in our trees with chainsaws…

The carnage.

Into the chomper….this thing was loud!

Clean slate – time to start the makeover!
