The Tree Dilemma
Post-Script: The trees in question are getting too big to perform do-it-yourself tree limb trimming each season, and if I have to call a "tree guy" (not the kind that saves trees, but the kind that turns trees into mulch and firewood), I might as well get my money's worth.
I do feel bad about taking them out, but I'm also fed up with their mess. Such is humanity, the decisions we make for the "betterment" of our immediate environment seem to be a double-edged sword, with long-term negative consequences for the planet.
