Laura Kelley points to a few saplings growing beneath a section of power lines in Orleans.
“So that’s a pine, and those are oaks,” she said.
Kelley knows a lot about Cape Cod plant life. She runs an organic landscaping company in Eastham. And the fact is, she said, if these little trees are allowed to grow to their full height, they’d be a problem.
“They would grow and become a harm if there were a storm,” she said. “They could take down our electrical source. We don’t want that to happen. We’re all in that together. ”
