simple life of a grand mother
That's quite a tall tree! -sad for the bird, to be sure.
It is still on the ground like dead big creature.Sad.
That was a very tall tree, looking at the length of the crane's arm. Lovely blue skies it must be very hot there already. I like the little lilac coloured flowers in the last picture. Greetings Maria x
Yesterday was the hotest day.38c all day, today it is better.
I took the piocture from my neighbor's yard i have to look what those lilac flowers are.
Fully grown palms are very successfully re-planted in places like Florida, because the root-bowl is so compact. I don't suppose your neighbours considered re-locating the poor bird.
The bird never came back.
It is amazing just how quickly a machine can dispose of such a tall palm. I am wondering if you have plans to replant something smaller in that space?Cooler here now ... I am not keen on days over 35° as they are too debilitating.
I remember the days of the 40c that you had Shirley, i dont like them eather. may be i shall plant something else soon.
Those professional crews who take down trees are skilled and amazing. We just had one very dead tree downed. It was so dead they would not climb it. They threw weighted ropes into the branches to secure it, made a few saw cuts. Two men took the ropes in the trees, walked several hundred feet away, and pulled until the tree crashed into the woods.
That how they did it here with the palm tree, with pine trees they climb and cut slices.
I have to take down trees from time to time, but nothing so tall as that! Here I have mostly maple, poplar and pine trees. Nothing so exotic as palms.My daughter, who is known for rescuing animals, has a squirrel. It was a baby, in a nest that was destroyed when a city crew cut down the tree the nest was in. Now "Conquers" lives in my daughters apartment. She gets out of her comfortable cage once a day to play. Not long ago, Conquers found my daughters cell phone on the bed and chewed it to pieces!
Your daughter is like my daughter Harry, we used to have here a lot of animals when she was a child and lived here.
Sad to see it go, but I suppose can be dangerous to have such a tall palm near one's house. Chag sameach, Yael!

A professional job. The scenery around looks as I imagined when I commented once before, brown and parched, except for a few trees. I like the feel of the climate in your home.
It is green in some parts but now the hills are getting dry and yellow each day.
I have an extremely tall palm tree in the front of my yard. I do hope the poor bird is ok.
Quick and easy job for big machine and crew, hope they are going to take it away for you.
