He was determined to get his new chain saw fired up and knew exactly where he would cut first.
In the front of the cottage there are two large Mugo Pines that for some reason were planted in a direct line with the front door. It honestly felt like these huge bushes were blocking all the flow and energy of the house. Even so, it was a very difficult decision for us to cut down at least one of the bushes. Mugo pines don't usually grow this large. Our minds were made up, however, when Michael realized a beautiful Black Walnut grew right in the midst of the bush. This tree, if left within the bush, would surely die and be lost soon. Walnut trees don't do well if crowded by other trees or plants. We felt that if we freed the tree, it would eventually grow into a very large and beautiful shade tree.
