Another Tree Bites the Dust

Jeff cut down the last of the rather invasive, pond-water-sucking, twisted willow trees today.  We hope that this is the last of it and that no more little ones will sprout on the pond edge.  It took over 2 years to clean up the bank, where the trees did quite some damage.  We  actually really like willow trees – but only a safe distance away from the water.  Last year, we planted a young weeping willow, which hopefully will grow into a graceful tree.
