on the last day of October...

...I am counting the rings of our pine trees.
It is sad to see them go but they were too high and too close to the house
and they are now felling them one by one...

Always sad to see a tree go down but sometimes the only option. 40+ here?

Margreet,
I counted 56 rings!
We are nine trees less now...
the space and light are amazing!

Wow, 56 rings!
When trees are close to the house they can become dangerous. I can see that you'll get lots of light and space when there are 56 rings. They must have been huge!
I have a fur tree in the garden and that is becoming big too, it's about 30 years old. I cut down the lower branches and my garden looks so much bigger and I have lots more sun again too. So I understand your reaction.
