Hey Mr. Fly,
You could start some 'guerrila gardening' then. Find a seedling alder out in the wildsand transplant it over the winter to live near the birch. It's all the rage this side of the water to help nature improve public places and spaces. If it IS public property then YOU have a stake in it and a right to improve it.

i'm going to stick my neck out here and go against the flow - butterflies and moths are a bit more endangered than birch trees, so i'd have been of a mind to let nature take its course in this situation.

Mr medieval knievel, I can see your point.If it happens again I'll take
the web, unharmed away to the bog and put it on another tree.


Thanks to both of you.
