I have been thinking about it, down home people go out and top their maples 
every two years whether they need it or not.  When the power company comes by 
they don't ask they just top the tree sometimes right down to where the first 
branches come out of the trunk.  These trees always come back with a 
vengeance.  My Mom has a nice Kentucky Coffee Bean Tree that she and I 
planted about thirty years ago.  It looks like a giant Bonsai, the power co. 
wanted permission to trim it and if it doesn't produce fruit it is useless in 
his book, he couldn't understand why we were so upset.

Lordy, I am glad that I didn't turn out like him.
