Welcome to my blog, where a 30-something couple from the UK renovate and extend an old cottage, build some outbuildings, raise some hens and grow firewood trees and vegetables on our Acre in Hampshire. It's a bit like a smallholding but without too many animals, so we call it a homestead - living within our means, relying on ourselves and having a wonderful life!

Felling the Cherry Tree

I filmed a bit of video footage of the moment the Cherry tree met it's fate.

You will notice that I jumped out of my skin as it finally fell - watch the stump in the moments leading up to the big 'crack' you can hear. Something inside the trunk gave with a huge crack which reverberated right through the ground. There is a huge amount of force in a falling tree!
