Thank you, Bonnie. I'm sorry to hear about the loss of your pines. It's been two years since my neighbor took the trees down and the landscape is fully recovered now - it's different, but it's still beautiful. I realize that's small comfort to you as you watch your beloved trees fall, but hopefully the new landscape that emerges will be something you eventually cherish as much as the old.
