Tree Rounds for Your Garden from Theodore Payne Foundation

I saw this in today's newsletter from the Theodore Payne Foundation and thought LA locals might find it interesting and useful. My tree rounds seem to act as homes to many valley carpenter bees as well as providing some extra seating for the garden.

Tree Rounds for the Taking!

Just recently, the Foundation had a number of non-native and poorly placed trees cut down on the property, and now we have hundreds of tree rounds available for whatever garden use you can imagine: seating, potted plant pedestals, bench supports - you name it! Like to split wood? This is your chance! The tree trunk rounds range in diameter from approximately a foot to five feet, and are of eucalyptus, pine and poplar. Got grandchildren? A large round and several smaller rounds would make a wonderful table and set of chairs. Still full of sap, the rounds can be heavy, especially the larger ones, so bring some strong friends to help out, and a lift gate if you have one! The rounds are free for the taking, but donations would be much appreciated. Please email Louise or Madena at louise@theodorepayne.org or madena@theodorepayne.org to set up a day and time for pick up. Even though the Foundation is currently closed on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, pick ups may be scheduled for Tuesday through Saturday, with Saturday pick ups before 10 a.m.. Thank you!
