Bringing a 360 Perspective
Here’s one of the trees we’ve been dealing with lately. It’s an example of why we bring our 360 perspective to work everyday.
The shared tree. This big old Grand Fir couldn't decide who it liked best. It straddles the property lines of four neighbours.
Trees are a funny thing. Not ha ha funny but funny. I’ll tell you why. It’s because everyone has their own idea about what should be done. Everyone has a different perspective.
Neighbour 1 can’t sleep at night because she thinks it’s going fall on the house.
Neighbour 2 really appreciates the birds chirping in the morning and the afternoon shade.
Neighbour 3 is irritated because his gutters are constantly filled with needles, there’s moss on the roof and the grass won’t grow.
Neighbour 4 has lived there for 60 years and remembers when it was part of the forest and all these other neighbours homes didn’t exist. She remembers when her children climbed it and swung on it’s branches and she remembers one summer when they built a tree fort.
All four feel strongly
All four have different perspectives
All four are right
