The tree demolition team were here most of the day, six men for six hours. Very very noisy; chainsaws and wood chippers and stump grinders. And looked dangerous at times!

We were left with this wasteland:

Both Tim and I felt quite guilty about the poor trees who had been here a lot longer than we had. Once the pool is in we'll be able to do a lot of planting, but it will take a while to grow.

    1. Yes it was a massive undertaking. I still feel guilty!

  2. It's going to be fabulous! It's so interesting to see the different flora down under. :) I see a palm tree, and what looks like a bird of paradise?

    1. Yes that is the biggest bird of paradise I've ever seen I think, the tallest at least. I never noticed it before, behind all our wilderness.
