The matching pair of 30-foot cedars, one on each side of the drive, had been the height of landscaping beauty when small.
Now they blocked the view of the road, and made leaving the drive dangerous. Even die-hard tree lovers admitted they had to go.
A thick chain, wrapped around the tree trunk and hitched to a powerful truck, failed to bring down the mighty trees.
“Put a rope high up, at the top of the tree,” said the wise sage who was watching the show.
The change was made, and the sturdy trees toppled without resistance, clearing the way for safe passage to and from the drive.
That’s the power of leverage.
How are you leveraging your efforts?
