Re: Goodbye Garden-Update! NOW Pruning

And, in our area, the County Ag Agent have had training in urban forestry
which covers all these issues.  They could get the training and information
for FREE.  In the little town of Friendsville are many very old
Maples...just beautiful.  Unfortunately, they have recently been
topped...now you can see the places where water and insects collect and the
leaves are beginning to fade.  In a couple of years, they will all be gone.
No reason for it...just ignorance.
