Thursday, January 1, 2015 with a BANG, Literally

As I was sitting at the computer planning a great post on goals for 2015 Alan came in to tell me that the game lands gave us another tree last night.
We were fortunate in two ways. First, the tree was dead and had lost all of its upper limbs already. Second, the tree barely grazed the roof eave edge of the new barn causing minimal damage.
The tree is an ash and seems to be seasoned so we will be able to burn it this year.
Unfortunately, the ash tree took the top 15 feet or so off an oak tree. It now stands about 20 feet tall. We'll let it go and see if it is able to recover.
