a whacking great branch came down, narrowly missing the shed, more of those branches overhanging the shed is a bit of a worry. Just like that, it snapped off.
And then, just to make me really nervous, a little higher.
My role in this adventure was much more grounded - he would throw a rope around a branch for me to hold while he cut, so that when it fell, I should give it a good pull and then it would not hit a fence panel or the shed roof.
I was only marginally successful in this, but the shed/fence/wood burner are, thankfully, intact, with but a few scratches on the shed roof.
Eventually our reciprocating electric saw came out, and the result is much less tree.
(Interesting, that, reciprocating saw - what is it reciprocating to?)
And I think someone is going to enjoy a good fire ...
