The Tree Trimmers

The men of the Chapala Tree Service are amazing in their athletic ability, skill and precision. They were here for 7 1/2 hours today, during which time they trimmed, literally, a dump truck full of fruiting stems, dry branches and other basura from my six very tall palm trees and left not a bit of tree trash behind. They even cleaned off the surface of the pool. I have only admiration for them. Here are the before, during and after shots:

About lifelessons

My blog, which started out to be about overcoming grief, quickly grew into a blog about celebrating life. I post daily: poems, photographs, essays or stories. I've lived in countries all around the globe but have finally come to rest in Mexico, where I've lived since 2001. My books may be found on Amazon in Kindle and print format, my art in local Ajijic galleries. Hope to see you at my blog.

    They turned out really nice. It’s amazing watching tree trimmers work isn’t it? We had a big tree we had to cut down in our backyard. It was fascinating to watch and see how much of a team effort goes into that job. Everyone’s role is important to do the job or someone could get hurt.

    Ours have only been in for 15 years, but are all different species. I must give a plug for Chapala Tree Service as they also look after all our fruit trees. Love those palms though! Great photos
