At the local nursery they have instituted an interesting "information desk". There is a large knot hole in a wall of the office. They have a few very expert staff who take turns sitting behind the knot hole and answering any questions. The rest of the staff aren't quite as sharp and when you ask them a question, they usually direct you to the staff member behind the wall in the office.

Well, I have a small pine tree in my back yard that produces an abundance of pine cones. So many in fact, that the tree leans over. I went to the nursery with this problem and spoke to one of the staff. I explained how the pine cones were weighing down the tree and that I thought maybe I should brace the branches. I wasn't sure what the best bracing material should be. The yard worker thought he knew the best wood to use to brace the branches, but thought I should confirm with the experts in the office. Of course he told me...

"Ask Knot what Yew can do for your Cone tree"
