Several trees in the backyard didn't leaf out this spring. Found out many neighbors are having to remove dead or dying ash trees because the Emerald Ash Borer had done it's damage. We lost 3 trees so far but there are at least 2 others that will eventually die, it's just so sad. All the trees were larger than the house, so we hired a tree removal company cut them down, but to save some money we had them leave the logs instead of hauling them away. A landscaping friend helped us rent a gas powered wood splitter...what a time saver...but work was hard.
