Mostly True Memoirs
A HUGE TREE
I’ve got this huge tree in the front yard.
It’s out of control.
I called a tree guy in to give an estimate for service.
From a safe six feet away, the tree guy said it’s a Live Oak tree.
I kind of freaked out.
I can’t just have our oak tree trimmed in the front yard in full public view.
I need permits.
I need permission.
I will probably be refused the permit, and the tree will wreck the roof.
Eventually it will wreck the driveway, the sidewalk, the foundation and the plumbing.
And then I remembered that I don’t live in Thousand Oaks anymore.
I don’t need a permit to trim my overgrown oak tree.
