This is how the conversation went:
"I check your blog every day, but I've been a bit bored with it lately."
Really? Do you want more content...more posts...maybe another Tree Care Handbook?
"No. I'm bored from that insipid map of Atlanta quadrants."
Now it is true that the Arborist Quadrant Map does not exactly meet the quality control guidelines of Tree News. It is also true that this graphic element is a bit too dry for us drought-weary Georgians. But the map does clearly and succinctly illustrate the bold numbers 1, 2, 3 and 4.
Understand that Harefoot does not live in Atlanta and does not fully appreciate how exciting the organizational structure of the City Arborist Quadrants can be. So I politley laughed, gave an accepting nod, and quickly changed the subject.
