Good Advice: Don't Plant in Sensitive Areas

(actual size 1.5" x 2" )

Another snippet of good, common sense in the form of a hitchhiker.

But wait...what is a sensitive environment, anyway?
Any parcel of land, large or small, under public or private control, that already has, or with remedial action could achieve, desirable environmental attributes. These attributes contribute to the retention and/or creation of wildlife habitat, soils stability, water retention or recharge, vegetative cover, and similar vital ecological functions. Environmentally sensitive areas range in size from small patches to extensive landscape features. They can include rare or common habitats, plants and animals. (Source: DUNSTE)
Hmmm...sounds like my house. My children could be considered wildlife, right?

I guess climbing champion trees would fly in the face of such good advice. *sigh*

Yes, MC, yes it does.

Let's just keep each other from looking silly, OK? :-)
