*FREE* Stump Grinding

We've had this magnolia stump sticking out of our deck for a few years.  Dad cut down the tree 'cause the big ole magnolia pods sound like cannons when they fall on the metal roof of the sunroom.  Mom said she was tired of the stump being there so she called in some stump grinders.  Dad complained about the money they charge, but Mom said these guys were FREE!  You can't beat that!



They're really hard workers - look at his head GO!


Hmmm, BREAK TIME!

Let's chase a squirrel!!!

We hope they come back to finish the job.  It's really hard to get good help around here.

Hmmmm, looks like a pretty big job for those peckers - maybe they went looking for reinforcements.

Hahaa! Woodpeckers are SO cool. When I was little I thought they were made up birds - no way there could be such a cool animal! Hopefully they finish their job soon. If not, you may want to look into hiring some beavers . . .
