This past week we had a few trees cut down in the backyard. These were trees that were damaged in last December’s ice storm. We jokingly referred to the tree removal as “the Orc destroying the Ents.” Even though the trees were damaged (some with large branches that snapped off due to the ice storm) I still hated to have them cut down and removed. The job was completed today, hence the ‘not so silent Sunday’ title for this post.
Here are a couple pictures of the Orc (aka Walter) cutting down the trees.
Unlike the Orcs in The Lord of The Rings Trilogy, Walter was much neater and removed most of the debris. I’m sure Treebeard would have approved.
