Lucy: Mom, the view looks different out the backyard. The tree is missing! Where did it go?
Mom: I know, Lucy. Sadly, we had to hire a company to come and remove our ash tree. It had died from emerald ash borer, an invasive bug species.
The backyard does look empty right now, but don't worry. We're still putting out bird feeders and our bird bath to encourage the wildlife to come.
Lucy: I guess that will be ok. Will the birds miss the tree, mom? I know I will.
