Pac Man Tree

Pac Man Tree

I am sure all of you have noticed trees that have been pruned in unusual ways in order that limbs won’t interfere with electrical lines. We’ve all seen trees that have been mutilated by this process. However, keeping electricity up and running is a critical need for communities. In many situations, it’s simply a matter of the wrong tree having been planted in the wrong place. In this particular situation, it’s clear the pruning contractor went to great extremes to preserve as much of the tree’s crown as possible while providing the necessary clearance distance from the power lines.

    I am a Master Gardener with Santa Clara County, California. I would love to use your Pac Man tree photo in a presentation to beginning gardeners. Would you be willing to give us permission to use it for this educational purpose? (Or if it’s not your photo, could you refer me to the owner?) Thanks!
