You Planted 'em; You Prune 'em!

"Emergency! Emergency!  Those trees you put in the cemetery are brushing the cars!", or words to that effect.  No good deed goes unpunished, and we were only too glad to spend an evening pruning trees to make the cemetery at Dahlgren look a bit better.  We know a lot of folks who are resting here.

The branches really were brushing cars that came in the main driveway, and we were lucky that the kids who mow the grass didn't take matters into their own hands.  They can mow now without having their hats knocked off.

We took off four pickup loads of branches in short order.  It doesn't seem possible, but I see a lot of sawlogs on my day-to-day travels that I saw go into the ground as one-year seedlings.
