In the grand scheme of things, this is probably nothing, but I am ABSOLUTELY LIVID.

We had an absolutely beautiful Mayday tree in our front yard that was probably at least 40 or 50 years old. It was already huge when I moved in here 22 years ago. Here's a picture of it last spring in full bloom. The blossoms were so fragrant, you could smell the tree all along our streert.

This morning the tree trimmers who the electric utility hires to cut out branches around the lines came by and asked us if they could trim the tree up. We said sure, they've done it many times before when the branches go up in the wires. We then went downtown to buy me some shoes, and when we got home, the tree looked like this:

Now that I'm done sobbing uncontrollably and we've bitched to everyone we can think of, we do have a commitment for a new tree (not a Mayday tree, which the utility company abhors), but it will never grow as big as this one while I'm still alive. Why would someone do something like this?

Besides a tree, I think someone owes me some money. This beautiful tree definitely added to our property value and was one of the things I loved about the place when I bought it.
