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, 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)
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.
