Well, it took the city exactly 14 months to finally come out and chop down that huge dead tree you see in the first photo below. I reported the offending tree which posed a hazard to the city via email during my obs construction.
Now I have a much better view of the Southeastern sky. Of course I probably would have never reported that tree hazard had I not built an obs in my back yard....:)))

Thanks, after a year of use the obs is holding up well, no issues. During the summer I added a Whirlybird turbine vent on the roof and a filtered intake vent at floor level. :)
