This lovely - very tall - ash tree was taken down the other day. (It was too close to the house.)
A friend of Mr.'s is a boat builder and he wanted us to save him a couple of pieces of ash. He also asked us to set aside some crotches. Who knew? I have no idea what they do with the crotches and I'm not about to ask.
Our climbing arborist - that speck in the top of the tree - cut the branches and made the kind of crotches the boat builder needed. So - right now I have two lovely large pieces of ash in the yard and a bunch of crotches piled up.
Ash and crotches... oh the fun we've had with those two words this week!! Double entendre is our specialty...
