Much has been written about crape murder and the practice of “topping” trees. Unfortunately, at this time of year, the work of tree hackers, both professional and layman, is evident just about everywhere in the community.Over the course of the past year and a half, I’ve fielded a few questions about pruning.

Despite the earplugs and protective earmuffs that she wore during the MRI “to dull the jarringly loud noise of the machine,” Kathy felt unwell after the procedure. After the MRI, Kathy’s ears were sore and ringing loudly. She told her husband, Rod, that she also felt a “searing pain” down her neck.
