Saying Bye to Our Tree
Baltimore, Maryland - February 20, 2018: Last night we said goodbye to our tree.
We recently found out the soil in our backyard has super-high levels of lead -- a not uncommon phenomenon in Baltimore.
Complete soil replacement is expensive, but covering the soil, like with sod, creates an effective barrier from the poison in our dirt.
But we had a shade problem. Sod needs sun, so our tree needed to go. ...which is sad, but Oliver will have a field of grass to play in. And more importantly, he'll be safe.
So, thank you tree. Thank you for the shade. You were an impressive addition to our backyard. We miss you.
