Hedge trees, part 1

img_0161
I love this line of trees beside the house. When we moved out here, we took out quite a few dead hedge trees (aka Osage orange trees). During the Dust Bowl years, they were planted around fields as windbreaks. It turns out they are very much dependent on each other. The canopy is quite dense, and when you remove a tree (or two, or five), the others start to lean and fall down.
