Phragmites permit--already!

Received my extension-to-phragmites-cutting-permit in the mail. Already! Only applied for it on Friday last week!

Now I can happily cut down the fire hazard once per year, late in the year, every year until 2020, not compost the cuttings, and leave the stalks two feet tall. (The dry stalks make an unusual natural wind chime when the wind is out of the east.)

And the green privacy screen will grow again each spring. And maybe, just maybe, the annual cutting-down will allow the wetlands trees to flourish a little better.
