DR Horton Sucks, Part 4

After 10 years, the soil has eroded away enough to expose more of the root flares of the trees.  I happen to notice the wire sticking up through the ground.  Some live trees come with their root balls wrapped in burlap and wire mesh.  It is proper to carefully remove the wire and tease the roots out when it gets transplanted.  The assholes that planted this tree just stuck the whole un-holy mess in the ground and called it done.  This is very damaging to the tree, since all the growth occurs on the outside edge of the trunk and roots.  I can’t believe a landscape company can stay in business doing work like this, and don’t want to believe a home builder can stay in business allowing this level of poor quality work to be done.
