John Pelkey Jr. of John’s Quality Tree Work trims a sugar maple outside the Lebanon law firm offices of Patrick Hayes, right, yesterday. “I’ve really got an emotional attachment to this tree,” said Hayes, who has done his best to keep the tree healthy through trimmings and injections. The house was built in 1830 and the maple is likely older. (Valley News - James M. Patterson)
