When we first moved into the house back in July, we noticed some grape vines at the side of the house, over and around the porch. We both commented on how nice it would be to have a pergola over the deck covered in vines, blah, blah, blah.We made a couple of half-hearted attempts to cut them back away from the maple tree at the edge of the property, but they have invaded the poor thing. I’ve called a couple of arborists to get estimates on removing the vines and disentangling them from the tree. Here’s the “before” picture. I’ll post an “after” once the work is done.
