We were at Aunt Mildred's on Friday the 15th, and while we were there the tree trimmers came to take a couple of dead branches of of the tree near her house. They were really quite skillful and it didn't take them long to take out the two branches. Mildred also asked them to trim up a little thorn bush that scratched her car every time she backed out of her driveway. It was all very interesting.
This is a video of one of the pieces coming down.
