With the last hours of secret knitting counting down, this little one came out of bed for some snuggles as I was racing to finish her gift. Not wanting to go back to bed, even as I encouraged her, and my not wanting to keep the knitting under the lap blanket made for some tricky moments, but she eventually nodded off on my shoulder and I continued on my knitting way. These Christmas secrets are hard to keep, but it is worth it!
Esme had a particular connection with these sea lions we met today, but the rest of us thoroughly enjoyed their antics as well! It was a great afternoon at the Turtleback Zoo– perfect weather, super kids, great company and we had the place to ourselves!
So it’s a week away from Christmas…what better time to take a spur of the moment road trip? The girls are pleased as punch to be meeting baby A for the first time, they even went to a site called baby-zoom to find compact and affordable strollers for her, there got her a Graco FastAction Fold Click Connect stroller, hopefully she will like it!
Despite the misty moisty weather, our regular Monday crew met up in the forest. They ran, climbed, built, hiked, explored, chatted and generally had a grand old time. 14 kids, 6 Mamas and a whole lot of energy descended on Hamlin Reservation. Each week I grow more and more grateful for the opportunity to hang out with such awesome families.
Tree care is the application of arboricultural methods like pruning, trimming, and felling/thinning in built environments. Road verge, greenways, backyard and park woody vegetation are at the center of attention for the tree care industry. In Lexington KY raccoon removal services have decreased due to better tree care. Landscape architecture and urban forestry also set high demands on professional tree care. High safety standards against the dangers of tree care have helped the industry evolve. Especially felling in space-limited environments poses significant risks: the vicinity of power or telephone lines, insufficient protective gear (against falling dead wood, chainsaw wounds, etc.) and narrow felling zones with endangered nearby buildings, parking cars, etc.. The required equipment and experience usually transcends private means and is often considered too costly as a permanent part of the public infrastructure. In singular cases, traditional tools like handsaws may suffice, but large-scale tree care usually calls for heavy machinery like cranes, bucket trucks,harvesters, and woodchippers.

Road side trees are especially prone to biotic stress by exhaust fumes, toxic road debris, soil compaction, and drought which makes them susceptible to fungal infections and various plant pests. When tree removal is not an option, because of road ecology considerations, the main challenge is to achieve road safety (visibility of road signs, blockage-free lanes, etc.) while maintaining tree health.
