German term or phrase: beide
Durchs Badezimmerfenster wir einen alten Walnußbaum mit drei Astgabeln sehen. Zwischen lebenden Ästen hingen tote Zweige, der zum Teil rindenlose Stamm war mit verlassenen Spechthöhlen übersät. Der Baum hatte ein Kalksteinsims überwachsen, in dem es eine Öffnung gab. Wir fanden beide, daß kein Baum für eine Wichtelmänner-Wohnun besser geeignet sein könne.

What does "beide stand for in the context?

Thank you in advance!
