The death of a tree



If you know anything about me you know I love trees. I have planted more trees in all my places than most ever owned. I even got my promised city tree a year before I moved. I visit it and my other trees often. Dad even had a favorite tree he loved in all seasons. It was on Charles Street,a lovely main road. That road was moms favorite road. His tree is also now gone as my front tree is.

Friday a freak fast moving storm with hail blew thru my street and got my tree. The tree landed in my front yard and damaged my fence. I mourn the tree more. Today they came and cut down the rest of the tree,it was too weak. Now I am sad and left with 2 large trees in my immediate yard. The fallen tree was outside my property and a street tree. Nothing is lovelier then streets covered in trees. Sadly my street has one less and it is my tree. Why my tree???

So sorry about the tree, Joy...that is so sad. I'm a tree lover too...they bring such lovely grace to a neighborhood. We have some beautiful maples in our yard that I would never want to lose. Maybe plant a new tree in their honor!

Oh! That is sad! I am so sorry it is gone. Can the city plant another tree there?

I too am a tree lover. I fully understand the sadness when a tree is gone. Trees are so unique and to be big they must have grown tens and tens of years, no wonder they have their own spirit in them. Someone noticed a couple of years ago I have a lot of trees in my photo- and other digital art. I made a discovery that allready in the late 60's I made water colour of old trees. There's something in the trees, more than just plants...

This is awful, and very sad. I know how you must feel, trees are such a blessing.
