The tree man came. I managed to save the pecan tree... but the 6 hackberries will be cut down. This makes me sad. As predicted, I basically just caved. I was told in the nicest way possible that there was nothing I could do about it, ultimately. But I could have drug my heels. I could have refused service, which would have delayed things a few months. However, I figure that if I'm going to plant new trees I should do it as soon as possible, since they're going to be rather puny for a long while.

Fortunately, there are a lot of very nice people who have offered their services in Project Plant New Trees in the Backyard, so I look forward to that. In fact, some weekend soon (this, or next) I'm going to have a "planning party". All interested folk will get together, tromp around my backyard, go to the nursery, look at trees, etc.. And of course we'll grill, play games, and music.
