Clearcut Context


In case any of you were wondering, here's an example of what's being demolished near Lily's house.

Sad. Pi$$es me off. Why do people do this? Why bother moving to the country if you are just going to change it into the burbs?

Because they count on their neighbors to keep the trees on their lots and preserve the beautiful views from their new home. I bet they will be the ones to complain if the next person does the same thing.

I thought the trees were the selling feature of my property. I am situated on a cliff, and there is a deck from my upstairs bedroom and when you stand on it, you are surrounded by treetops. Who the hell wants to look at the side of a vinyl box?

What the hell is wrong with you guys....Trees are a renewable resource.

Did I say that outloud?

People re-landscape to one-up their neighbor. It's sad, but true. You wonder if the folks that clear-cut then replant have ANY clue or even care about the negative consequences especially since they think if they fix it (replant) all is ok.

Honestly, I don't think they care. People don't see the trees in their yard as "nature", it's just their "yard". They're just another thing to move around like rearranging the living room furniture.
