no real value. eeeek but to me.

my wonderful neighbor is slowly taking out all her oaks because…well…they have no economic value except shade. eeeek I consider beauty of great value. she kills them by removing bark ring around base (remember freshman biology and that the xylem and phloem stuff is the circulator system of the tree) then she burns em. she does replace them with various fruit trees (value). she used to work for the FDA and has degrees in ag economics. she does know what she is doing. but I am going to go against her advi e and keep my oaks! they have visual. slue for me and I like the sound of the winds whispering through their boughs.
