Stewardship Of Trees

Original post made by Jackie Leonard-Dimmick on Oct 16, 2007

As winter approaches it is wisdom for us to get our trees trimmed. More and more people are depending on the sun for their electriciy and hot water. Those who don't have such systems still enjoy the light and warmth that floods in on a cold winter day.
Summer and winter fruit trees and vegetables grow abundantly with unobsructed sun light. This extra produce can be shared with neighbors. These are ecological reasons for trimming trees.
Another reason is for safety of the neighborhood. It is important to be able to see what is happening on one's street. "Who is coming up the walk?" "What is that unusual noise in the middle of the night?"
These are only a couple of reasons why people should keep their trees well trimmed, preferably year round.
