That is the truth. It is crazy how much UGA cares.I have a golden privet hedge around my deck. Every winter I cut it down to about a foot tall, and by the fall, it's grown to about 6 feet. I'm sure there are landscapers trimming those hedges every month, so breaking a few sprigs off is not hurting the plants. I'm sure the dwags don't like the insult, but there's no injury.
If UGA was smart, they would have a guy down there that was trimming off pieces with clean cuts and handing them out. Make it a new tradition. ;-)
