Re: Royal Paulownia, now topping

They do that here, then a couple years later, if the tree survives, there
are even more branches growing into the wires. I have been known to run out
and threaten lawsuit if a certain company here touches one of my trees. One
year I stood out there 20 minutes, repeatedly saying "You may NOT cut my
trees", before they realized I really really meant it and left.
