Thanks for the clear and helpful directions on pruning White Spruce trees. I also appreciate the link to additional information on these trees that you provided. I have been searching the web and books for information on this pruning process for a while; your response is the first helpful information I’ve been given.
I am not the Bob Newman that you used to know at Newsday; we not only have the same name, we are apparently the about the same age. I grew up in the town where that paper had its headquarters (Garden City) and I am an artist. Many people who knew me assumed that his art work published in that paper was my work.
