I am currently in the process of renovating my entire front yard! This is a huge project and honestly, I cannot wait for it to be done and over with. I want to be able to sit on my front step, crack a cold beer and revel in the glory of my new yard. But, that moment is a few weeks away still.

One of the things that had to be done was getting rid of a crab apple tree that was in the yard. Sadly, this beautiful tree has seen better days and fire blight has taken its toll on the tree. Every year since moving in, I have had to cut some large, dead branches off of it in the spring and summer months. My wife and I decided it was time for it to serve another purpose... Firewood.

I enlisted the help of my neighbor and his big Ford truck to get the tree out of the yard and of course I had to record the process for entertainment purposes! Check out the video!
