Tree down for good on West Vine Street Searcy AR beside REALTOR office.

By
Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Advantage

On June 28 2011, we got the picture of this house with a huge limb on it and in it.  Here's the photo. And here's the blog.

Limb on house

Time rocked on.  On Sept 22 we were having a meeting at the Searcy Board Of REALTORS office, which is across the street from this house, and the activity at the damaged house was distracting.

The attraction was the crew across the street preparing to down the tree.

Notice the lines on the tree and the BIG BIG saw that was soon to be used.  The notch on the left side had not been enough to bring it down.

With that big saw working the watchers and helpers scattered.

The tree fell right where they wanted it to fall.  I personally tried to measure how far I was from the tree just in case a mistake in calculation occurred.  WOW!  It made a loud thump and we all cheered!

And there's the reason for the damage to the house and the reason for taking a tree down.  It had lots of decay inside.  Those tree guys did a great job with a large audience of REALTORS watching.

Mary, you must be somewhere around Hoosick Falls, NY which is 19 minutes West of Bennington, VT.

VT NY 

We're not in Searcy either. Here's where we are right now. Far from the wrath of Irene.

Holiday Isles, AR

Mary, the house you refer to is further West, I believe.  I think I went to an auction at the Darden house but remember I didn't grow up here so I could be wrong.  I'm glad Irene has left you.

Sometimes your blog personally speaks to me Barbara, and it's kinda eerie. For example, the first tree photo in this post is dated June 28, and that's my birthday. The blog behind this is about a tornado that happened the year I was born.

Vegas Bob, I was truly fascinated with watching those guys cut a notch in that tree and then use that big saw to complete the job.  They are professionals!  Before downing it, they had to cut massive limbs off the sides.
