Re: blue heron > trash trees


He doesn't have a burner, just said if he got one he could burn the stuff
that falls, not that he could heat his house with it.  I tried to suggest
other trees.; nah, he likes cottonwoods.
One tree I put in before I was told I shouldn't, is a Pin Oak.  This really
grew fast and it seems quite happy where it is and I'm happy with it.  I've
limbed it up as High as I can from my tallest ladder.  The only problem is
that they don't drop most of their leaves until early spring.  So it's a bit
of a pain to clean up, but any deciduous tree is going to drop leaves.
