Burns' Red Barn

Old friends asked me to paint their home here in the town of Olive.  They recently had their barn painted a true "barn red".  It made a nice contrast with the evergreens in the back and the lawn which
was still green when I took the photo.  The leaves were still on the apple trees in the front lawn, but I did take some artistic license with them.  They weren't quite this full of foliage.  The trees are old and my friend said he soon will have to cut them down.  I wonder how old they are?
