Tree Trimming

When I used to live in The Colony Apartments in Provo, I would walk past this tree every day on my way to and from BYU campus.

Now, I understand that some trees need to be trimmed to keep them from damaging power lines and telephone lines. But tell me, why didn't they just chop this one down all the way? It's so mutilated that no one would make the argument that it's beautifying the city. It just stands as a testament to human atrocity.


  1. I always think that makes the tree more dangerous, too. It's not touching the power lines, but how much would it take for it to just split down the center?

  2. True. Like that box elder tree behind our rental house in Willard that split and fell on our swing set when we were kids.
