We had a tree guy over for an estimate on cutting down a mulberry tree in our yard because it is in the process of wrecking our neighbor's stone wall and fence. While we were looking at it, MrsBlue surprised me by asking about the gigantic maple next to it, pointing out it was missing bark all up one side of its trunk. Once I saw what she was talking about, it was no surprise that he said this monster was in danger of coming down, and should probably be felled. We're unhappy about this on a number of levels: The loss of the beautiful trees, the loss of the home of more than one bird's nest, and the loss of privacy from our neighbors' yard. We are also quite concerned that this is going to harm our naturally cool house, as this tree blocks a significant amount of sunlight all day, which combines with our brick walls and relatively high ceilings to allow us to get by with no air conditioning except in my penthouse (converted attic) office, something that came immediately to mind since it was about a thousand degrees yesterday. We'll just have to see how this turns out, since we can't risk this tree actually falling, as it could completely obliterate our neighbor's house if it did.
