These are what we call, “Weed Trees.” They grow in profusion every year all the way across the edge of the civilized part of our yard, cutting off our view of the valley below.
Some of these are over 10 feet tall, and they grow thickly. You cut down one, and you find 5 others behind it.
The task is pretty daunting, but I’m determined to cut these down and restore our view.
The far left side of the picture shows where I’ve been working. I’ve opened up a small amount of the view.
This is a part that I’ve cleared down to the place where walking – or even standing – is very difficult.
You can see the small area where the tallest weed trees are gone.
I’m giving notice to the rest of the weed trees – it may take me all summer, but I’m going to cut you down!
