Pardon me while I trim my fence
On my post of May 13 I noted that my rustic fence in the backyard made from fresh-cut hackberry trees was sprouting new growth. I thought it was a short-term situation.
Almost a month later the fence posts are still "alive." I think the growth is from all the rain we've had and vestigial capillary action in the bark, but I'm no arborist. There's no way a hardwood tree can live without roots. Is there?
I trimmed the green off of all the posts. Die, fence, die.
