Re: WAS Royal Paulownia NOW tree topping

Our county has this implement that I call the tree chewing machine.  It is 
like a tractor with this huge cutting blade that is perpendicular to the 
tractor.  Maybe it could be used parallel to the ground, but that's not done here.  
Anyway, the idiot drives goes real slow next to the shoulder of the road, and 
this blade "chews" the limbs off the trees, leaving great strands of bark 
hanging at the ends of the "nubs."  The purpose of this exercise, according to 
county government, is to prevent limbs from falling on the road in the event of an 
ice storm.  We do get ice storms -- every 15 years or so.  It's the 
Clampett's home turf, I tell you!
