Fence from the Storm

As we were on our walk a couple of days ago, we came across what looked like a fence, and visited with the owner of the property. Apparently, a large storm came through Camden on November 2nd last year, dumping 18 inches of wet snow with high winds. It snapped off several of his trees along the front of the house, so he cut them off. Results are a strange fence, for sure.


But since you are in Maine, you need lots of firewood, so what's left of the trees is ready to be stacked up for the winter.


Linking to Theresa for Good Fences on this Thursday.

Hello, it does make an interesting fence. They might need that firewood this winter! I hope we do not get a lot of snow this year. Enjoy your day!

That is a funny fence with a more funny explanation!

Now that's an odd fence but definitely helping mature along.

Strange but interesting too!

a shame he lost them, but i rather like the 'stockade' type fence the trunks create now.

Before I read your narrative I thought the owner was just being creative with some old logs, but it was the real thing. Interesting!

The landscape changes in an instant when violent storms come through.

some one has been very very busy. lots of hard back, knee, arm work. ( :

Mike said...

That's one way to save some stump digging work. Now all he needs is a rail across the top.

Well, that's a creative use for those downed trees!

Clever idea! :)

What a neat capture! I hope he does more with the tree stumps and makes them into a finished fence. We had a major storm come through the area and broke trees off by the hundreds. I guess you find out the weak ones during these events.

Shame was loss but if winter is anything like last year all over. Plenty is good.

Ida said...

Boy that storm did create a different fence after those trees were cut off. Good to have the extra wood though you would think.

William Kendall said...

Considering the amount of snow New England got last winter, extra firewood's a good thing.

What a contrast of colours in this pic - blue, green, white. Looks as though that house was freshly painted.

Cool fence. You must be havin' a marvelous time. You inspire.
See you soon?

A good way to make the best of a not so good situation! I imagine they will look good in a few years with other things planted and growing between them. xx

Margaret Adamson said...
