A tree surgeon rang at 8pm. Told him you were out, asked him to ring tomorrow instead. Wants you to rest assured that the chemicals he will use won't kill your other plants.
Insists he has nothing against plants, even rhododendrons. He hasn't got anything against trees either. Insists they're completely separate things. He tells people he loves all plants except for trees mostly to distinguish the two. Went on about this for a while.
Cut him off before he went into species names. Told him I had to deal with Pump 4. Sounded huffy but ended the call anyway.
Hopefully we'll have this old evergreen cleared before summer. Can't really afford any more funny looks from drivers.
Let me know how it turns out on Thursday.
