  1. talk about a bad haircut. did they really need to cut them bald? man I have a pet peeve of chopping trees down to nothing.

  2. The tree trim does look too severe, and in the short term not a pretty sight. But I’m pretty sure there’s method to such madness. With what’s shaping up to be a wetter than normal winter I’d suggest checking back with the arbors in the summer and hopefully there’ll be leafy goodness abounding.
