scoff away

I did not like having a view of the beer store when I bought the Goose. So I transplanted privet from around the yard next to the road. (I like the view of the beer store even less now. It looks like a bomb went off in it. ) Yes, I know, privet is invasive. But it sure grows fast here.
Fast forward eight years. Despite my attempts at pruning, it was catching up to the maple tree at right.
So Dave hacked it back with a chain saw. Now it's only about seven feet tall, and will bush out next year and have to be chopped back again.
