Why don't you and the logger pick up all the twigs, branches, etc and take them
to the bureaucrat's bureau and dump them on his BLANKING desk? If they stop
you at the door, then dump them on his (state purchased) Mitsubishi Land
Destroyer out in the parking lot. <G>
Alternatively, you and the logger could document your time doing this
unnecessary work and send them a bill--with a note that if they don't pay up
within a certain time, you'll take them to small claims court. I've threatened
to do this and it worked.
