Do people still white wash the trees anymore?
I got to thinking about this when I mentioned in Tahoe's post about the color of his barn. I remembered suddenly the old guys in my town used to white wash the trunks of the trees every summer, maybe 3 or 4 feet up. They have all passed on and I haven't seen anyone do this for years.
Is this still a practice or was it an old timer thing? These guys were in their 70s and 80s 25 years ago.
