The Maple tree that is in front of my house that the rouge squirrels are trying to carve into oblivion
As I prepared for the next upcoming winter storm this morning and trying not to bust my ass walking in the melted slush (it was 42 degrees this morning) I noticed that I had chipped wood all over the snow banks under my maple tree in front of my house.
I had no clue of where all these wood chips were coming from until I looked up and saw a squirrel looking down directly at me out of a hole that was newly chewed into the tree.
Now this is a very old 60-75 foot tall tree which has definietly see better days.
This is what these little rats with fluffy tails have done to this particular branch;
This is squirrel damage on two sides of the same branch.
Now tonight we are going to have 30-40 mph wind gusts along with more snow along with a very nice 30 degree drop in temps this evening. My concern is that this branch may get taken out...
I e-mailed my SO (for this week so far ) these pics this morning and he was more concerned with me killing them than the branch coming down. Just for that.. I'm going to name a squirrel after him.
So Drapt...I just may have some fur for that baby's coat! Wish me luck!
