Why did you murder such a beautiful tree?
Link Posted: 8/16/2005 2:30:35 PM EDT
I'd estimate it would have taken 3000 rds of 5.56x45 to take that tree down. Maybe less.

So, how old is it?

We had a tree that was probably a bit smaller, and it was about 70 years old.

Here in Oxford, where there are many old trees, one had been recently cut down and I counted the rings, and it was over 150 years old.

I really dont understand why people cut big trees like that down unless they are a health hazard.

No big trees = ugly

I wanted it out of the way, it had allready been hit by a car awhile back, and was damged, it was close to the road, so I decided to have it cut down.

Estimated age is 80 give or take a little bit.

I have about a dozen more that are coming down in the next few months.,

The tree will be put to good use, FIREWOOD.

when they get that big and they are right next to your house it does not take much for them to fall over, especially when they are standing all by themselves. They can really mess up a house, car, etc......


I live in South Alabama, we have had quite a few trees fall down in the last year thanks to storms.

You need to cut a "wedge" out first. Cut it on the side you want it to fall towards. And allways fall a tree down hill, if your on a slope.

Never just try to cut through the tree. I couldn't tell from the pic, but looks like he just cut around tree, straight across. Lucky no one got hurt.

Fun cutting down trees!

No he cut a "wedge" on the far side, the cut from the back through. He is a good guy who knows his stuff about falling trees.

I have used him for several other trees I needed cut down that I did not want to do.

He is also Licensed, bonded and insured.

WOW! What an intelectual come back THAT was.

Do you know what sap is? Do you not realize that during a drought plants feel stress?

Type trees and stress in Google and read the links.

Or when they get pruned wrong they also under go stress?


And why is it that if someone actually cares about nature they are labeled a wacko?

Do you go into the forrest and leave trash everywhere or do you pick it up?

Plants do not feel stress. Plants do not have a nervous system.

Plants may become stressed, but they do not have feelings

I'd like to share something my brother once told me.


"I was walking through the woods one time, and a came upon a pond. I had some change in my pocket so I took it out and was about to through it in. That's when I realized I was a City boy. I was about to through change into a natural body of water."

Plants DO become stressed.

And of course they don't have a central nervous system.


My first posts about plants having "feelings" was tongue in cheek mostly, but we still don't understand all of how they work yet.


But with that said I like plants and trees..

Yes it is his tree and he can do whatever he wants with it. But have nice grown healthy trees aroung is a GOOD thing.

I will concede that Trees bleed, however we could kill all of them and still have plenty of O2. Trees are less than 10% of the O2 that we get the rest is plants, alge, and photosynthetic bacteria. 90% is the alge and photosynthetic bacteria. Killing all trees would damage the food web, but Humans wouldn't die.

I cut 27 trees out of my yard after the second one fell on my house.

At first I loved those trees, then I began to HATE them.

I could not get grass to grow, raking 200 plus bags of leaves twice a year, and then the damage to my house the second time was enough.

I now have 2 trees in my yard and I love them again.

I would hope you had that tree milled to at least get good lumber out of it.

Pains me to see some people (like a friend of mine) who paid $600 to have a beautiful pecan tree cut down and turned into mulch. Hell, I would have paid to have it milled and kilned if he would have let me know about it.
