Have it Jest As You've A Mind To, But... [Mar. 24th, 2017|11:07 am]

I ask Matthew to take the dead wood out of a tree that's still alive but struggling and he hesitates for a beat and then says, " The birds like the dead branches. They can sit up there and look around. No leaves up there so they get an unobstructed view."

There's nothing in nature that doesn't serve somebody's convenience.

We reach a compromise. "Tell you what," he says, "I'll take out anything that's liable to drop on someone's head..."

It's actually required to leave dead trees standing in woodlots in Nova Scotia, to provide bird habitat. Similar rules apply in Australia.

we've been having a similar conversation

M. let's leave the branches with pine needles under the pine tree
the trees need them and it makes a place for
small rodents to be(and not in our basement)

trying to let things become natural
instead of being a golf course
is hard for him.
but cut down the old rotten trees that need to come down?
that won't happen till the tree takes out the car.

Our rotten trees are a long way from the driveway. If they drop branches on anyone's head it'll must likely be a horse's.

that could be a problem.

luckily our last bout of winds
have dropped the biggest dead branches that would fall.
just haven't gone around to gather it.
