tree alert (paca)

That was the subject heading for an email I just received from the university announcement email address which sends emails to some 20,000 people.

Tree Alert

What could a tree alert be? Have the ents come alive and are currently storming the chemistry building? Apparently, it is this:

"Several trees around the Campus Center are being prepared for a tree-climbing competition that is being held here on Saturday. Areas around those trees are marked with tape as a safety precaution, so please be extra-alert in that vicinity between now and Saturday.

Everyone is invited to attend Saturday's events, sponsored by the International Society of Arboriculture, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m."

So there you go. Tree climbing competition. I'm glad they send the alert out. I've always viewed trees with considerable suspicion. Damn stinking trees.
