Re: Royal Paulownia


I mentioned earlier that they cut our tree-lining streets every 7 yrs.  This
is not because of power lines - those are in the easement in back.  They
need to be limbed up for school buses and delivery trucks and to get
dead/dying limbs before they crash down on someone's car or head.  We get
some pretty bad winds through here and Silver Maples are notorious for
dropping limbs.
