Re: help needed; russian olive trees and berries and ir horse

Horses will increase browsing when pastures go dormant. The berries (actually fruits) of this tree are over 50 % glucose and fructose by dry weight , . Leaves can also accumulate significant amounts of sugar and starch but I haven't found specifics for this tree but deer and cattle consume them readily.

Can you get permission to remove low lying branches?
