Sheer Ignorance

Posted by VT Jenny on October 7, 2008

These poor, poor trees were the victims of an over zealous person with a hedge trimmer. Their happiness with power tools have forever scarred these once proud trees. The sheer ignorance of what these trees should look like and would be healthiest for them is astounding. However the bushwackers have ensured that they have more work to do if they are not fired first. Sheered plants require constant maintenance to retain their look. However the guys weren’t too clever on the last ones that outgrew the height they could reach.

For good pruning tips see the plant amnesty site, where their mission is to end the senseless torture and mutilation of trees and shrubs.
