I'm sorry about the trees. I hated to see a couple of ours go, also. Especially the triple oak that fell 2 winters ago. We were always under that tree, and Penelope, one of our goats, enjoyed it as well. She would look up at it adoringly, and wait for leaves to fall at this time of year. We called the falling leaves her 'potato chips'. She really enjoy them as a snack. And, one of our California Bays. It was in the chicken yard. It shaded part of it, and the chickens enjoyed roosting in it.
Love All Life, Thank You For Posting! :)
