Storm Aftermath

My neighbor's tree blew...sideways... during the storm. It didn't actually come DOWN, and the roots weren't completely ripped OUT. It was leaning at maybe an 80 degree angle, not the 90 degrees it should have been. My friend didn't even notice, at first.

The tree guys aren't answering the phone, they are SWAMPED right now. And they aren't too interested in propping up a tree.

So my Boy Scout sons rushed to the rescue. "Here I come to save the DAY!" and they got some seriously large rope they'd scavenged, and some hydraulic toy they'd gotten,


and straightened the tree out a bit.

I guess the question, though, is NOW WHAT? Do we leave those two trees tied together forever? Probably not.
