Yeah, tree. Do it.

Chinatown can be a tough spot for people, and trees. Loyal readers may recall this gutsy tree near my studio. She ended up putting out some branches last summer, only to have them torn off again, by someone enraged or suffering, probably. It was a frayed [afraid?] stump all winter.



But look at her now. Nature just keeps doing its thing, doesn't it? If we allow it, at least.

I changed the tree's gender after I saw the flowers.

Cutting a tree down like that can actually make it live longer. See: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coppicing
