Choppin' Down a Tree

My parents have needed a tree taken down for a while now.  It was too close to the house and was dying.  Knowing we had a fire place, they offered it to us for firewood.  Joe has experience taking down trees, but this one had obstacles on all sides.  He had to avoid the house, the fence, my mom's bushes, and the lamp post.  We have 1080p HD video footage below!



We were not going to have a 'dead' Christmas tree (we have the live one in the planter), but this tree has been at my parents' since before they bought the house.  I thought it would be nice to have it on our porch and decorate it for the little creatures outside.  I'll string cranberries and popcorn.  My sister will help me decorate pine cones with peanut butter and bird seed.  Maybe I'll hang some suet on it.

What else do you think I can hang on the tree for the birds, chipmunks, and squirrels?
