Re: Re: Royal Paulownia


I find it interesting that you can make demands.  Here, all trees that are
cut by the utility companies or the city are owned by the city.  Any tree
that lines the street, once we were annexed into the city became city
property.  So I have no say in what they do to it.

Whenever they come through - once every 7 yrs is the schedule - people
scream and holler and carry on about the damage.  But they don't top the
trees.  They do some severe pruning, but mainly just what is necessary.  A
year later the trees look much better, better than before they were cut.  It
allows some light in.  They really do a pretty good job of it.
