Fallen Trees Are Out Of Luck

Above is a tree in Downtown Houston knocked down by Hurricane Ike.

You always hear that when you fall down you should get up and start again.

That’s good advice. But I’m not so sure it is relevant for trees. When a tree is knocked down they cut it up and haul it away. 

The Houston United Way is collecting donations to assist people in the recovery from Hurricane Ike.

  1. like a zebra in the zoo bred for the public, the tree made for a sidewalk. the tree might enjoy being mulched and tossed in a compost better then watching the misery of the streets of houston. who knows.

  2. The tree wanted to live and watch the city life go by.
