Trimming That Bush?

Are you kidding me?

Ok, so I’ve been away from the blog for a bit, and that’s bad, but I’ve been a touch busy trying to get my business off the ground. You need anything print, digital, technology, video, audio or production services, by all means, get in touch with me.

But back to this here bloggy thingy. I have yet another moment when I want to know what someone was smoking because it was either really illegal or the glue has gotten better than I remember.

Helena, a city which is down 1 police officer and 1 firefighter since 2010, has hired an Urban Forester. You can read about the budget and what it entails here.

I have but one question – in a town that is surrounded by National Parks, Forests, and more trees than God could count, why would we need, much less actually pay for, an Urban Forester? As a follow-up, who thought this was a good idea? And what, exactly, does this job entail?

I can find nothing about it yet. But I want to know.
