We heard today that the municipality will be coming tomorrow to assess the hollow tree across the river. We wrote a letter a couple of months ago stating it was urgent we get permission to cut it down. We've been waiting all this time. Hopefully, we'll get them to realize how dangerous it is. Although it's on the other side of the river, it's big enough that if it falls it can do damage to our property. That's what we're trying to avoid. It's against the law to cut certain trees in Costa Rica ... and the penalties are even more severe it you cut a tree near a river. We've gone through all the proper channels, wanting to follow the rules. We sure hope we get permission tomorrow to cut it down (it's a no brainer, really). Stay tuned ...

My husband, Kevin, and I are from Burlington, Ontario, Canada. We decided to leave the cold winters of the Great White North and the hustle and bustle of our busy lives to reinvent ourselves in the beautiful mountains of Costa Rica. The planning stage started in June 2011 and we embarked on our new adventure on August 23, 2012. Welcome to our journey... enjoy the ride.
