    Good point Fareway. I have to remind my guys now and then too, especially around the younger trees as mentioned.

    RoundUp! :angry:

    Burns me up when I see that. It is really bad when they do it to palms as they do not heal themselves like oaks and trees with bark. However, I see it all the time here.

    Shearing the Paint off Wooden Fences and Kids Playgrounds is Another one of This Bozo's Specialties....Who Said a Monkey Could Trim ?
