147/366: demise of the alder

The first tree planted in our front garden served us well, only to be cast aside after providing us with greenery and shade for twelve years. Why? For the Grand Garage, something we had been hanging out for in the preceding years.

As we planned to widen the driveway, the alder had to go.

Going….

going….

….gone. Looking at the photos, I had forgotten that my husband actually climbed up the tree and chopped it down.  I realise now it looks pretty dangerous. We then opted to have the tree stump professionally removed, necessary for the concreting, unlike the conifers in later years, where we left the stumps at ground level.

Now we were ready for the pièce-de-résistance, the garage!
