There is the most awful arborcide going on in my community. At first it was on the main road going past, and I sort of noticed it while walking the dog and wondered how it would impact on the noise from the road towards our little house. The trees were all healthy and in good nick and I don't have a nice local councilor that I can email and ask what the heck is going on, but it wasn't right in my back yard. I sort of assumed they'd probably want to widen the road so that even more cars could be stuck in traffic every day - nope, no one ever learns that more roads means more traffic, not less.
I should have known this morning when getting out the shower I saw 2 huge trucks on the road outside. I did take action. I didn't leave things to chance. I went and asked what they were doing and they were removing a roadside tree they said.
(By the way: Is there someone out there who can tell me how to add a bunch of photos to a blog using blogger.com without them jumping all over the place I just want to be able to line them up side by side and under each other without big gaps.)
