Day two...The Water Oak has to go....

Sadly on closer inspection the majestic Water Oak is just not healthy enough to be saved...It would also create a potential risk to the house...The branches are like swiss cheese, just full of wood pecker holes...or just visually rotten...










So under the watchful eye of Foreman Sara it too was removed.








Firstly he dug around the base of the tree and broke as many of the tap roots as possible...This took awhile to get done.









Then he gently pushed the tree over..










By sacrificing this old dying tree, it allowed us to preserve both pecan tree's and a smaller live oak tree....







Here you can see just how big it really was and the hole is HUGE.....
