|The dead mimosa tree|
After finishing the upper branches, we sawed off the larger lower branches as my neighbor and his guests eyed us nervously from various windows. Finally it was time to take down the main trunk. We had fun with this, using the old axe left in the garage by the previous owner.
Timber! We used a saws-all with pruning blade to make quick work of chopping up the branches and trunk. One more thing done!
