Work Starts on the Pond

Recently work started on clearing around and deepening the pond on the land we will be building on.  Here is the back hoe starting at deepening of the pond.  Image

There were plenty of decisions to be made about what trees should go and what trees should stay.  The Per-Oak I wrote about recently stayed but what about this cedar?ImageImage

While the top is alive, the base looks awfully funky.  As it is flanked by healthy oaks and willows and not even my neighbor who loves cedar trees and uses the old limbs in creative ways had any use for it, it is history.

Eddie, who is doing the work, is an artist in moving land and debris and shaping the look of the pond.  Here he is at work.

Next, what to do with the brush piles?  Bury or burn?
