    LESLIE: Alan in South Carolina, you’ve got The Money Pit. What can we do for you today?

    ALAN: Well, I’ve got a problem with the trees on my property. It was about seven acres. It was planted pine. The pine was taken down and there are some hardwoods that are about 30-some – some even 35 feet high but only maybe 10 feet wide. I’m wondering if these things are worth saving.
    TOM: Alright, do you know what kind of hardwood it is?
    ALAN: Not exactly. I know some of them are oaks and I’ve got a few maples.
    TOM: Yeah, now that you’ve cleaned out the pine they’re going to grow nicely, too. They’ll have a lot more light getting to them, I imagine.
    ALAN: OK, it seems to – they seem to have filled out, like more small branches, but they haven’t gotten much wider.
    TOM: Well, they’re slow-growing trees, my friend. (Leslie chuckles)
    ALAN: OK.
    TOM: You may be in for the long haul but I’ll tell you what: now that you’ve cleaned out the overgrowth, you’re going to find that they’re going to grow a lot quicker. Just make sure you take care of them.
    ALAN: Okey-doke, I’ll do that.
    TOM: Alright, thanks so much for calling us at 888-MONEY-PIT.
