On or about 1972 my father planted a small Colorado Blue Spruce on our lawn. Just like puppies and kittens little trees become big trees. It became so big we had to trim it severely to avoid problems with electrical and telephone lines. It really didn't look very good trimmed and the wires were still at risk. So we cut it down this early October and took the log to neighbor's mill and we now have almost enough lumber to build a covered sign board for customers to learn things about trees when they arrive to buy the perfect tree. We have additional lumber cut here on the farm to finish the project before Thanksgiving if the weather and the work load permit. We have also planted a new small tree further away from the wires but not too close to the road.
