Michigan’s tree industry

The past few days, our local power company has been around the bed and breakfast, in the Inn’s backyard, and occupying parts of the bed and breakfast parking lot in order to trim and remove tree branches (and in some cases the entire tree) that have grown over the years on to the area power lines.  All the buzzing, chopping, grinding and hauling of the past weeks here have been a reminder of the large tree and wood production industry of the state of Michigan.  We often times take for granted all the vast resources of our state, such as the tree industry.
