This is another shot showing the loss of gravel that extended the entire length of the driveway, and another section of drainage dish that was mashed in. The tire tracks from the tree cutting equipment are clearly visible. This shows very clearly how severely the lanes were mashed down and the middle raised up. This made the driveway impassable for anything but high cars like trucks or SUVs. I could not drive my compact car on the driveway because the bottom of it scraped so badly. We had to hire a bulldozer to take down the raised up middle section of the driveway, and an excavator to repair the dramage ditch.

I'm standing in my street, looking down my driveway.My truck is not quite halfway down my driveway. The roof of my house is visible. In the summer you can't see my house from the street. Notice the small lamp I have attached to the rotting tree trunk with red bow. I may soon be required to look for a new stump!
