Good-Bye Tree!

I’ve been waiting for this event for a long time! Goodbye to the backyard pine tree! Goodbye to your needles and pine cones! Goodbye to your ominous lean when the wind blows…the nights of lying in my bed wondering if you were going to come crashing down on my head!

Goodbye to a home for the squirrels who scurry through your branches. Goodbye to a home for the birds who sit at your very top singing their songs. Goodbye to your summer shade. Goodbye to your snow covered pine cones and your majestic presence when covered in winter’s glistening ice. Goodbye!
