A boring report on the tree situation follows for those who are interested and have asked.

The trees didn’t do much damage to anything- they actually were suspended between the boxwood nubs by luck and a stout branch or two. The tops did bruise up some garlic planted nearby but it would appear all but one of the plants will be fine.

The nasty fat trunk-ed Cherry Laurel I have been cursing for years basically fell along the property line, crushing a flimsy welded wire fence but ending up hanging over the long line of American boxwoods I spent a few weeks moving to that border.

Closer up, it is apparent that most of what is over the box woods are the leafy top branches.

Thinned (last night):

Chopped (this evening)

I’ve got to put some thought into cutting up the trunk laying along the fence line, otherwise I’ll wipe out a row of transplanted boxwoods.

    Looks messy. Since I posted to ask for pictures, I guess I should say thanks for the details!
