Here is a garden-related question: If you put a horseshoe on the side branch of an oak tree 4 feet above the ground, and the oak tree is growing at a rate of 1 foot per year, how high will the horseshoe be above the ground in 30 years? If the answer is 34 feet, then you are tricked by an old tree problem. The horseshoe is always about 4 feet above the ground because the tree fills the range up from the tip of the focal lead, not from the bottom of the tree. Side branches 4 feet from the ground will remain at this height unless you prune them.
