I dont know, Larry, with the frequent fires and automatic gun fire in
the LA area, prunning may not be necessary, may run up unnecessary
costs.  And, in 20 years, there may be so much metal in the logs as to
be useless.  You may want to run a baton plantation to produce a local
use product,  demand seems to be high.
