What's a 'wmall' tree?
Got an informational piece from the phone company with my bill, and one part keeps comin' back to me. They advise planting slow-grwing shrubs or trees ten feet tall and under near telephone and power lines. Doesn't say how tall they should eventually get--guess I'll move or die so I don't have to worry. Calls medium-sized trees 10-15 feet tall, and large trees 15-30 feet. Those aren't the size definitions I've always heard. I certainly agree it would be extremely helpful if people wouldn't plant trees that sooner or later will have to be butchered to make room for the power lines. Nothing looks much worse to me than a tree that's been whacked to fit a spot it should never have been planted in. But I keep going back to the sizes they list. Guess a small tree would have to be a bonsai if 10 to 15 feet is medium! Or is it just me?
