Storms take limbs and some limbs just die off or simply get in the way. No matter what the reason, sometimes some limbs just have to be removed.
But all limbs taken don’t go to waste in the North Country… No matter how large or small, when there’s a wood-stove, there’s a purpose: provide warmth, fire-wood. So as sad as it might be to lose some growth, there’s joy and comfort to be gained, come the long months of Winter.
No chain-saws used here though. A simple hand-saw, loppers and pruners and from tree to wood-stove, the “circle of limbs” goes on.
