Sentimental me, about a tree, Share the JOY

About 12 years ago we planted a Riverbirch tree in our front yard.
Or rather the nursery did.
We accepted his recommendation of what was a reasonable distance from the house to plant the tree.
I loved that tree.

I admit we did not routinely have it trimmed as we should have.
It has grown to be gigantic.

Just a few weeks ago we had it trimmed by a professional.

I asked him why he left those little twigs on there.
He told me we need those to see if it will leaf out this spring.

 Imagine my JOY when just a few days ago I see green.
I love the bark from this tree and use it to dry and use for some of my art projects.

Our plan was if it looks too ridiculous we could have it completely taken down at a later date.

I call our homeplace
Riverbirch Acre.

Go here for more JOY sharing.

Oh you must have been over the moon to see that green. Hope that it makes it for you.

I hate to cut a tree, maybe if we all say a prayer it will come back
just as pretty. Hope it makes a great comeback.

Wow that's some 'trim'!! Looks like you'll be enjoying your tree again in the near future

Some trees are very hardy. I had three quaking aspens in front that I had to cut down and it took poisoning twice to kill them.
