    Before making a decision on which trees to plant, it would be a nice idea as stewards of the environment to plant trees that help promote the survival and multiplication of bees in the area.

    You do know that who ever owns the windmills in Iowa has for the past 10 years hired a company -something like Alpaudo to remove 10s of thounsands of trees for the windmills and their right of way roads – Facto – see their fleet of 6 large trucks for this area gasing up at Caseys all the time. Nice to replant – but the wind speed in Worth county is double that of you southerners in cerro gordo. Just to set the record straight on giving and taking.

          I’m sure he doesn’t know what he’s talking about. Tree companies are hired to trim trees that affect the power lines, usually just by trimming branches away from existing power lines, not removing the tree

        Over the last 10 years cutting down 1000 trees per year -Lots of small ones – (the also tow large wood chippers so you really don’t see the huge piles of dead trees – but I KNOW and SEE the crews -cutting results (before/after) but being you probably are a public servant or a somehow paid servant of the corporations you can call me a racist because that’s the only fkn answer you have.

        I agree -I believe they cut down every damn tree they could lay their hands on between the Minnesota border and the casino.

      First of all, the tree company is Asplundh.

      Wind speed doubled, eh?
      You may want to check facts before “blowing wind out of your ass”.
      Average wind speed 18.06 mph Worth County, IA
      Average wind speed 17.00 mph Cerro Gordo County, IA
