The Great Wall of West

September 11th, 2014

Today Alan got to stake the locations for the new trees, after the City Forester had come by to talk about options and locations.  We’re getting four, three to replace the three we’ve lost, and one to get a head start on the BIG, MASSIVE one that will come out when the redo Sturdevant.  Hate to lose it but they say no way, it’s up so high over the curb, the sidewalk is coming up.  But this tree is at least twice the height of the house, as is the one across the street, probably planted way back in the 1920s when they built our house and the one across the street.  Do NOT want to lose it.  Oh well.  As Alan says, we’ll be in the nursing home before they look like anything.

And the Great Wall?  It’s coming together, they poured the first couple panels last week and the forms came off, and today they’re pouring the second group of panels:


And here they are pouring the concrete:
