Tree carnage -- the warm-up

My dad is down here to butcher the trees that need pruning in our yard. Good recreational fun for him (and me!) After poking at some of the shrubbery with the shears as a warm-up, we got the pole pruner out, decided it was too wimpy, went to the hardware store to get the monster 14-foot one with extra-sharp teeth, and got going on the oak that was hanging over the power lines in the back yard. At that point, I had to go get Nimue from school. Much carnage ensued while my dad was left unsupervised...

The magnolia in the front requires a chain saw. Hee hee ho ho muahahahahaha! More to come.
