Hemlock trees

We have decided that we are going to take down 3 Hemlock trees that are right next to the Mooreland House. We have done some research and these trees are not special and they are dangerous to have next to houses when they get bigger. The way that they block one of the most elegant sides of the house is also a problem. In order to fix the storm porch on this side we would have to work under these trees. We think it will be easier to just remove them. It isn’t happening tomorrow so we still have time if anyone has a reason why they should stay. We do think it will make this curved side of the house a lot more visible and it will be worth it.

    I love trees, but sometimes, they just have to come down. When you’re ready, fire up the chainsaw Frank!

      Whew! Always nice to make a decision that everyone agrees with! That went a lot smoother than we thought it would.

    Most trees that are very close to the house are problematic at some point. I think you are doing the right thing by cutting them down.

    I think that would look much nicer. Sounds like a good idea. Then you will be able to see more of the beautiful architecture.

      Yes take them down. Too close to the house. Roots could damage foundation if they haven’t already

    Sounds like you have researched and given much consideration to this matter. I agree that those trees need to go.

    I love trees, and it broke my heart to cut down two beautiful maples in our front yard last summer. 🙁. But it was the same situation, they were just too big and way too close to the house. I agree. Tough decision but it’s best.
