A perspective from Oregon’s mid-Willamette Valley
At first glance, seeing yellow caution tape in Albany’s Takena Park made you think that a venerable giant of a tree had been declared a hazard and was about to be cut down. Not so, however. It was a problem of a lesser sort.
What are those new contraptions in Albany’s Takena Park, I wondered as I was riding past and saw them from the street. Four posts each, with connecting stringers at the top, like big four-poster beds.
With a vacuum like that, keeping your place clear of leaves this fall would be a breeze, assuming you could wrestle the big hose around, which looks easier than it is.
