Working in the flowerbeds at the side of our house, the sunny solitude of Cedar Hollow was broken by the noise of a buzz saw. Alas! Two men were on an aerial platform cutting down the beloved white birch tree behind the neighbour’s house across from us.
The nursery the white birch held for baby squirrels would have been abandoned weeks earlier, but what fun it had been when we occasionally saw the black squirrel ascend or descend from its leafy abode!
Will we miss this elegant tree? You bet!
Here is the modified skyline now viewed from Cedar Hollow.
