You Think You Know Your Friends and Then

BLAMMO !!! They channel James Watt. On Yahoo is chipper news about the woods…

Forest covering an area about the size of Greece disappears each year around the world, but replanting efforts are beginning to reverse the trend, according to a report by the UN Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO).

But on Wunderkraut, it’s just WOOD CHIPPER news.
( I’d normally add how fetching he looks during his TV appearence, but I’m not speaking to him. “Drainage”, indeed.)

    Hey now! We ARE replanting with good 4″ diameter trees. That way my kids, kids will have trees to look at.

  2. WunderKraut says:

    …thanks for the compliment

  3. (Well, it’s true.)
    Oaks, I hope???

    You didn’t pay attention to the story, did ya’ THS. You just automatically sided with the florist against the evul tree-cuttin’ foreward thinking engineers. ;P

  5. Nope, listened to the whole thing, Cullen. I understand drainage, sewerage in the river, florists with bad glasses and small city, arbo-fascists. So HAH!,
    smarty pants.

    You summed it up best. I would wager a years pay that if we did not do this project and that ladies yard flooded or there was water standing in the road in front of her business, that she would be screaming holy hell.
    Yeah, going back with oaks. BTW, the trees that are there now were planted in the early 1920’s. They will not live forever. So some stratigic replantings will actually help in the long run.

  7. Cullen says:

    The avenues are quite nice. And, honestly, the impact of the trimming and cutting has been very minimal to the overall impact.
    THS, the reason I asked if you’d watched the whole thing was because at the end they say they’re re-planting oaks.
    Ent hugger indeed!

    Just woodchipper news? I would have thought that was a FARGOne conclusion.

    Reminds me of a co-pilot The Grinch flew with……..woodchipper, that is….

    I must say, WunderKraut, that you are looking very chipper today!

    Chip looks a little like the vacuum cleaner from The Brave Little Toaster. (And thanks, Thurl.)
