RE: Re: Royal Paulownia


I really got on my high horse last year when the power company came by to
chop at our trees in the middle of a hot dry period.  I told them I'd have
to be there to watch and I didn't expect to lose any major limbs and that
they were not to take more than 1/5th and that I expected the trees to look
well-shaped when they were done.  I also added that if they had come during
a dormant period for the trees, they would have been allowed to prune a bit
more heavily, but still only with my approval.  This winter they were here
again and did remove some of the larger branches closest to the power lines.
However, NO topping was done and they were very careful with their cuts.
(Centerville being a tree-city American City, I don't think they want to be
on air for diminishing that status.)

Blessings,
Bonnie (SW Oh - zone 5)

Here too, one of my pet peeves. I was noticing some especially butchered
specimins on the way back from the nursery this morning. Make me nuts.
