They paved the trail behind the house this summer and they made it a bit wider, so the big spruce across the trail was right on the edge of the trail. It is the big green tree to the left of the trail here.
Other winters, well, it was right by the trail but it provided a place for the little fevvers to protect them selves from the cold. You can see the green all the way down.
A month ago they came along and cut off the bottom third of branches! We don't know why, the county owns the land, they can do what they want with it. But we are sad to see the loss of places for the fevvers.
