The Seaquist Orchard near Sister Bay reports the tops of 639 cherry trees were chopped off sometime between late Wednesday night and Thursday afternoon.
Yes, they were small trees and the tool used was an ordinary limb lopper but damn. I've used one of those all day at work and I don't think I had a day where I trimmed more than a couple hundred branches. Somebody was really motivated.
I really want to know the story behind this one. Maybe there's gas operated loppers now. Still, even with power tools that's a whole night's work.
