The one thing of all this that, s t i l l, amazes me is the following:
Please see (go to my server) the image I created at
www.robemack.net/pinolive.jpg Shows an area about 12 x 30 ft. the top
of this area is now all dirt/level. Just a month ago, the 2 x 4 (by 2 ft deep)
volume (~ 16 cubic feet), I call B, was "open" (exposed) with nothing 'in it' but air! then was filled with
dirt. Today, the top (just barely underground level) of this 2x4x2 (B) is loaded with
THICK olive and/or pine roots! These are too "old looking" to be "new"; as if these roots were
there for a long time, just several feet further down - then, suddenly,,,,wham!
roots! Is something pushing these from "way down" up to almost level ground, and
relatively quickly!? The same thing happened at 'A' 6-8 months ago, at that time a big
olive tree root, 7 ft long!, was removed. Area 'A' is not a problem any longer,,,its now at
'B' !! the huge root at just underground level, at A, seemed to appear almost overnight!
Nobody believes me! I dont believe this myself anymore! The entire area 'A' was root-removed-ground-chipped-sawed
by a machine 1-2 months earlier. There was nothing left in this area,,,until not long
afterward, this giant 7 foot long olive root appeared!
"Today,,,no roots ----- tomorrow....could be roots galore!" Its as if an empty volumous area
is root-free one minute, then a bunch of roots is in it the next! They cant be moving sideways,
can they!? they must be moving upward,,,,fascinating!? I may write all this up in a white paper,,
maybe I can get enuff bucks for it to pay for all I have spent on this story! PS: I just learned
our city, in their wisdom, is planting OLIVE trees on both sides of a major street near me! I
think its too late to stop them! Or, just a simple "Im telling you so" now will do, then a
"I told you so" later.
