March 13, 2010 – Tree Pruning

The sun peeked out unexpectedly today!  Our week of fog and overcast is coming to an end.

Tree pruning brings many decisions.  Here is Linda scoping out a tree for the next cut.

Later on, in a different tree, she takes to tree climbing for a better stance.  This tree is a great example of the effects of a microclimate.  It is planted due west of the sw corner of the barn.  When we get an east wind, the breeze funnels around the barn on this spot – so much so, that the tree has grown with a distinct lean to the west.
