Re: Royal Paulownia

I think they must do it everywhere that there are overhead power lines. Guess I'm lucky because the power line for my place runs along the back property line where there are no big trees. Folks across the street are not so blessed. Many of them have butchered trees in their front lawns.

But I have to believe that some of this is brought on by the homeowners. I have a corner lot and there are power lines down the side street. Whoever owned this place before the people we bought it from had planted a queen palm directly under the power line. Cost me a case of beer to get one of the landscape crews to transplant it for me.

they do that here too Marge. They'll cut the middle out of a live oak so it
has this giant swoop in the center. Looks ridiculous and I'm sure those
trees are going to topple any day OR they'll just cut one side of whatever
the offending tree might be so it's branchless on one side and full on the
other. Completely asinine.

When I read your first post - didn't have a chance to respond then -
wondered if what you were seeing was the handiwork of our idiot
utility companies?  They go around hacking back trees to keep them
away from the power lines...and hacking is a kind word for what they

Kitty, it just reminded me of what I saw. Many of these were in
