A new tree

Before we can continue with the deck between the two buildings, and the stairs up to the entertainment complex, we had to plant a tree. We chose a 25' (11" caliper) Texas native Cedar Elm tree, which arrived on a long semi trailer.

Whew, at least we didn't have to dig the hole by hand!

It was quite tricky maneuvering the tree under the electric lines.

That's a heavy tree! The crane was having a few issues balancing.

Some final tweaking to make sure that the tree is properly level and at the right height in the hole.
