* Poda de árboles en la ciudad 2
* Pruning of trees in the city 2

Comencen a les 8 del matí amb un soroll de por!
Empiezan a las 8 de la mañana con un ruido ensordecedor!
Begin at 8 am with a deafening noise!

@Ricard Pardo: ... i una cirurgia especialitzada % x % ! No se si seré capaç de transmetre el "delicat" procés d'aquests "artistes" improvisats! De veritat que no se d'on els treuen! Moltes gràcies Ricard i bon cap de setmana! Una abraçada, Adela

Ronnie 2¢ from Atlantic Shores, United Kingdom

The pruning looks a bit drastic - but I guess the trees are used to it ! Love the fly-by PoV !

2 Apr 2011 6:32am

@Ronnie 2¢: They are a species that grows fast but poorly pruned and outside its natural time ... Here we call them "bananas". Glad you like Ronnie friend! Thank you very much and happy weekend! A hug, Adela

Curly from South Shields, United Kingdom

I think they sometimes go too drastic and it takes the trees years to recover. Nice to see the activity in your street.

2 Apr 2011 3:30pm

@Curly: You have reason are very dramatic and also are out of season! Fortunately he has done with the trees on my street! Thanks you very much! Best regards, Adela

Lalena from Barcelona, Spain

COm n´`esde còmodeara podarels arbres!!! Aquestes grues tanquetes pugen ràpod i ocupen relativament poc espai!. Original temàtica, sempre personal! ;) Bon dissabte!

2 Apr 2011 3:58pm

@Lalena: La poda d'arbres al meu carrer és una mena de cosa terrorífica amiga Lalena... Un xivarri de por... menys mal que ja es va acabar! Celebro que t'agradi. Una abraçada, Adela

El pare from Prepirineu, Andorra

No s'hi posen per poca cosa, oi?, Déu n'hi do quina podada! El braç de la grua ja marca una diagonal, però no en fem prou... m'agrada l'accent que li has donat, Adela. Bon dissabte, amiga meva. Salut!

2 Apr 2011 4:24pm

@El pare: Bones diagonals oi? Ja coneixes la meva tendència... crec que ja m'has descobert! Moltes gràcies amic Manel... Un cap de setmana tranquil? Bon dissabte per a tu també! Una abraçada, Adela

Melocoton from Salamanca, Spain

¿sentirán dolor? ,¿ sentirán alivio? , ¿serán conscientes de lo que les ocurre? , yo creo que si, los insensibles somos nosotros......

2 Apr 2011 4:55pm

@Melocoton: ... pero a mi se me ocurre otra cosa... y si había un nido?. El primero que vi vuando era niña paseando por el campo con mi padre quedó grabado en mi mente para siempre... Muchas gracias y buenas noches amigo Pablo....

Marta Mateu from Oix (Girona), Spain

A Barcelona van molt ven preparats per fer la poda, i van per feina, als pobles la cosa és d'un altre forma, ara si són d'ara, realment van molt tard. M'agrada el monocronisme, per coses de la ciutat queda molt bé. Un petó.

2 Apr 2011 7:33pm

@Marta Mateu: Moltes gracias amiga! Ja s'ha acabat la famosa poda... fora d'hora... esperem que no se'n mori cap! Una abraçada, Adela
