Tree Update

We had an outside contractor come in to cut down the tree that was hit by lightning on Monday. We opted to just take down the trunk which had all of the bark torn off. The arborist had doubts that the rest of the tree will survive, but we thought it was better to just take down the unsafe portion of the tree at this time and hope for the recovery of the remaining tree.

We had the outside contractor come in, because with the storm that came through, the City's forestry department could not guarantee that they would be able to get to it before the City Championship this weekend. The contractor just took down the damaged limbs and trunk and left it there for us to cleanup. This saves us money and leaves the portion of the job that we feel comfortable with.
