Re: Distasteful aspects of lawn care.
Yepers, here in eastern Washington, we now in many places have Russian Olive tree forrest’s. The smell at times is truly repulsive, and those, who like my wife, that have allergies experience various reactions. None of which are good as you can guess. In the last 10 years, we’ve had 2 major fires in those forests. The property owners AND neighboring residents asked the fire fighters to “LET THOSE #*#$%@^* (Bleeping) BURN”, but were told they were required by law to put the fire out. AND, to add to the stupidity, Russian Olive trees are advertised for sale at many businesses. Some people never get out of controlled environments, house to sealed car, from car into environmentally controlled building and lunch in a nearby environmentally controlled eating establishment. Sadly, a lot of them are the elected officials who write the regulations that limit fire fighting options, not knowing the consequences of those regulations. Oh well, at my age, I only have to feel sorry for people with allergies for a rather limited time.
