It kills me when I see trees getting cut down. Maybe you can label me as a tree hugger, and if tree huggers cry at the sound of "timber!", then yes, maybe I am just that.
These majestic trees that lined the river bank were cut down, and they had claimed that they were rotting.
I'm not a tree expert, but I ran into an older lady, and we both were pretty choked about the whole situation. Neither of us could find any sign of rot on these trees.
So why does this happen?
Was someone's view blocked by the trees? Is there a parking lot going in instead? It always reminds me of Joni Mitchell's 'Big Yellow Taxi'- that they took all the trees and put them in a tree museum. Sometimes that is really what seems to happen!
How backwards is our society that we would let this happen? That we cut down trees when they are "too big" because their roots are trying to get through the roads, just to replant them with new trees that will inevitably grow to do the exact same thing?
Trees are so unique, and there is not a tree that is like another. I want a forest so bad in my backyard, which obviously is very lacking in trees at the moment, as seen here.
I've had some fun times with trees. They make me feel daring and adventurous for some weird reason. I am starting to sound more and more like a tree hugger, hey?
This is me chilling with one of the biggest trees I've ever seen. This would take a few tree huggers to show this tree some proper loving!
Please make me feel better about the death of the trees above by sharing a good story about saving a tree or something! Anything!
Please and thank you.
