I was walking my dog last Tuesday and I came across something very interesting. Something that I never really noticed it before today. It is funny the things that you discover when you take a little to time to look around.
Denver, my dog, and I was mosey along the streets in my neighborhood. He was enjoying the smell of the grass and chasing rabbits. As Denver was frolicking in the dew-covered grass, I was checking emails and text messages on my phone. Taking care of some business before I made it to the office. So I am busy, engrossed in an email from my mom of all people I hear the sound of someone yelling. At first, I ignore it thinking that I was hearing things. At that time of the morning, I really do not hear anything except maybe the sound of the garbage truck. At first, I thought that that was it, the waste management crew. Nevertheless, they only come in that neighborhood on Thursdays.
Checking my calendar on my phone confirmed that the day was not Thursday but in fact, it was still Tuesday. Curious as to see what was going on, I called Denver back to her leash. After securing my lovely Denver, we made our way towards the noise. While we were walking, we saw the most peculiar sight. A squirrel sniffing flowers. It was crazy I did not know animals even thought about flowers. However, this squirrel was standing up on its hind legs sniffing some tulips and roses. In addition, he look like he was really enjoying it. You just never know what you will see early in the morning.
As I was saying I was walking my dog, Denver, when we reached a spot where we could not pass. That just so happen to be the place where the yelling was coming from. Just like that, we stumble across the one place we were actually trying to reach. As we approach closer, I noticed that there was a tree service crew, front Springfield Tree Removal, working super hard. It was something to see. They were removing this tree. This huge oak tree. The yelling was they coordinating this effort. This great effort to take down this very large maple tree. The crew was working together like a well oil machine.
They were using equipment and terminology that I had never heard before. Who knew tree removal could be such fascinating work. Not just for me but for Denver as well. She did not make a peep the entire time. We were both enraptured.
After a few hours, they were able to safely cut down the tree and pass it through a wood chipper for mulch. It was amazing. It has not to see that they do not waste anything. I often wonder what happen to those removed trees, now I know. Well, at least one way to repurpose an old tree.
All this from a little walk in the morning and a bit of curiosity. It was great and it show that you never what adventure lay ahead.
