    Sorry to hear that miss-tiff.

    Hope you feel better brS. You may want to call you local City planning department and ask them if tree permits are required for taking trees down. Most communities have rules and laws governing tree removal. you can't just cut them down because you want to. Check into it.

    I am finishing up some office work before i start cooking dinner. My older son is being extremely difficult today..can't wait to send him off to first day of school tomorrow.

    FedUp - There aren't any laws here unless the trees are on city property (like the parkway). If they are on your property, then you can cut them down. No questions asked. You just have to make sure you're not going to hit something on neighboring property. I imagine if you cut the tree and it landed on your neighbor's house, then that would be frowned upon.

    Lol! smashing the neighbor's home..i bet that would be a problem

    But i am pretty amazed that the rules are so relaxed, especially when they are cutting down well established trees.
    I just finished writing a Woodland and Tree protection Ordinance for a client last week...so i was wondering...

    Hmm, that's interesting FedUp. We don't have any sort of ordinances here. There are laws, however, that pertain to causing harm to a tree on another person's property.

    I had to get up early to help my son catch 2 more bugs for his insect project that was due TODAY!! I told him for weeks to catch more than he needed!
    Now I'm enjoying this fabulous Fall-like weather!

    Did you get anything from Mantodea? We've had a ton of those around lately. Of course, my favorite is Lepidoptera.

    There's a picture of Lepidoptera in my signature. We had to memorize this stuff for our lab practical in zoology.

    Neat! I saw a big moth yesterday. It was cream with black stripes.

    trying to wish away a blistering headache...rough first day of school.

    they changed my son's bus stop and even though the driver was the same, he forgot to let my son off the bus. Total panic when i saw the bus go by and no kid ( i was standing on our driveway and the stop is 5 houses down; the driver waved to me and kept going!)
    tried following the bus, but it had turned down some side lane by then; so i rushed to the school and ended up having words with the principal
    she then got the bus to turn-around wherever it was?! and i rushed back home and had my son get off the bus...tear streaked and trembling from head to toe
