You still remember the day your father came and planted the tree in honor of your oldest daughter’s first Arbor Day. At a time when the consumerism in this country seems to get the most of every grandparent, it should have come as no surprise that your father would have escaped the temptation to purchase another toy, or another piece of clothing. Instead, as a first time grandfather he had a much grander vision. He wanted to plant a tree that could later be enjoyed not only by his granddaughter, but by the whole family.

His instinct was correct. By the time she was six years old, your daughter was able to play on a wooden swing hanging from a rope that her grandfather made that was attached to a tree that her grandfather planted. In addition, on the times when first your older and then your second daughter wanted to convince the entire family to picnic in the backyard, those meals were enjoyed in the afternoon and evening shade provided by that same tree.

With all of these memories in mind, cutting down that tree has been emotional.Your father has continually warned you, however, that dead trees can do a lot of damage if they fall on their own during a storm. In addition to the expense of the tree removal, the emotions behind the process have been difficult. Ever the pragmatist, however, your father was actually the one that suggested that you call a tree removal service when he could tell that some major branches in the now 22 year old tree were dying. Towering to a height that could actually damage your home if it should fall, the tree needed to go. Fortunately, you have literally hundreds of photos of your dad and his granddaughters enjoying this most generous and thoughtful gift. In addition, your dad has promised that once the stump removal has been completed he will again plant another tree.
