(Hey, I think it’s Tree Week on the GP!)
Our land has a nice buffer of big, old oaks, hickories, and maples between us and the two-lane highway. Power and phone lines thread through the middle of them. Thus, I have nightmares about orange Asplundh trucks.
So with much concern, I noted that utility crews and
subcontractors have been out in full force in our rural area,
inexplicably leaving one tree and then “pruning” another.
I pulled over and snapped this latest atrocity last night. The power lines are to the right (not in photo). As this is only a mere mile or two from our property, I may sit at home on the porch next week with the shotgun in my lap.
