While the Dressage Arena was closed for the mirror maintenance, we also scheduled tree trimming of the adjacent Eucalyptus and California Pepper trees to thin the crowns and lighten the trees. Natural trees grow and fall over time creating shelter for small animals, serving as a food source for deer and other animals that eat tree bark and fertilizing the ground as they break down and rot. That however, is not an option in Nellie Gail Ranch. We trim trees to remove hazardous branches, beautify, improve vistas and maintain structural soundness.
