A long, long time ago, somebody planted a sapling, and carefully protected it with a fence. The fence went all the way around, to keep the deer from eating the tree. It worked.
Now, decades later, the tree has grown out of its little fence, which is skin tight around its circumference like a little wire mini skirt.
And the tree is all grown up, now.
This is a good tree.
I have a question, though. Should we cut off the wire, or does it matter now?
