Another One Bites the Dust

Ah, the joys of owning an old Christmas tree farm. Unfortunately, these farmed conifers are gradually falling victim to old age (40+ years) and borer beetle infestations. Fortunately, their roots are extremely shallow and they can be pulled out with the tractor. Plus, they make awesome bonfires throwing sparks high into the night sky and crackling when lit off. I think Ralph is getting ready for the Summer Solstice. Let's just hope the weather isn't too dry for a big burn.
