All kinds of wRITING

 
 
 

Finally, the owners of our wood have agreed that it would not be a good idea if one of the trees just to the north of us were to fall down, squashing us and demolishing the cottage.  The woodmen always prefer to bring a tree down as you see it in the movies (‘Timber! Crash!). But this wasn’t possible here, as the most dangerous trees were leaning towards us. So what you see is the tree guy sawing off the branches bit by bit, while his mate stayed on the ground guiding the lopped branches safely down.
