Day 121 - Timmmmbbbbbbeeeeerrrrr

Today the block started to be cleared.  It is amazing how different it can look in a short amount of time.  We knew which trees were going to be removed, but didn't realise that the block would look so dramatically different.

The tree guy told me he would be there between 8:00am and 8:30am, so I got there just before 9:00am. He arrived at 7:00am, and quite a few of the trees were already down.

Beware of picture overload

Do you remember that there was a large pile of rubbish on the block before?

It was quickly removed

There is a liquid amber tree that we wanted to keep, but unfortunately it cannot stay in its current position due to a drainage trench going through there. So rather than lose it, we transplanted it

Luckily I got to view the last of the trees going down. Some of them were about 20 metres tall, and they were no match for a 40 tonne excavator. With a small push they fell over.

It is looking a lot different from when we started. It looks a mess at the moment and there is still a way to go. Stand by for some more pics.
