I am crying while I am typing this. I need to get rid of the pair of sweet gum trees in my yard although they are one of the original reasons why I bought the house. From day one, everyone is telling me to get rid of the pair of tree. However, I did not listen at all. I put off the topic all these years.
If you recall, before the last storm, there was also a “Tornado”, both event demonstrated some very possible severe damages to the house as the pair is only around 10 feet from the house. We got huge trunks (which are only some branches!) falling in the yard and on the storage shed (luckily not on my roof or my neighbor’s roof!). I still got pictures of the disaster.
While the trees provide good shade for my family and my house for 360 days, it will only takes them a few hours or simply one drop to destroy my house. My family feel being threatened on any windy day, esp. after the recent storm and the last “Tonado”. If the wind blows at night, I just keep praying as I cannot fall asleep by listening the roaring orchestra of the wind, leaves and branches.
It has taken half a century for the trees to grow to this height, if I have to cut it, I hope they can be useful. Anyone wants my trees? or help me to sell them?
