Wintertime Backyard Nature in New Jersey.

The folks from Hamlet Tree service started removing dead and diseased trees from the yard. The first stage of the project is to make room for some of the deer fence. Later to clear an area for more wildflowers and a fruit tree orchard. Hope to do some time-lapse videos of their work in the future.
