    • that happens all the time around here. my neck of the metro area was a semi-farming area meaning housing was encroaching on farmland. they had some farm homes with some beautiful tree groves around them. they bulldozed all of the trees when a developer bought the farm and turned it into a housing development. it was so sad seeing 100 year old oak and elm trees being cut and bulldozed down.

  1. Cutting down perfectly healthy trees for “progress.” Ugh.

    Order seedlings from The Arbor Day Foundation. Plant a row of them in a long planter and place the planter on your window sill. Every time you look out, imagine the seedlings being giant trees far away. : )

    We have a huge cottonwood tree in our neighborhood. It’s on common property so doing anything to it has to be approved by a vote. The closest homeowner wants to cut it down because of how messy it is. They are messy, I have one over my house. The dog eats the worm-looking seeds. The dog brings in the sticky pods on her feet leaving sticky prints all over. The dog chases and eats the floating cotton. Messy. Anyway, back to the vote – I had to vote against it because the tree is so old and beautiful. Sorry, neighbor…until next year’s vote.

    • I’d vote to remove it cuz I’m allergic to the cottonwood fluff. I sneeze my head off when I’m around them. After saying that, I would say “I want to cut it down, I’ll repair the grass area and I’ll replace it with a 10 foot poplar or maple or some other agreeable tree.”

  2. You hit the nail on the head, it is all about money, all the time. So if you are the last tenants there, how long will that last? Are they looking to tear that building down too?
    If you ever want to see a city with lots of trees incorporated in their town and glorious Fall colors, go visit Boise 🙂

    • they can’t tear the building down since it’s on the National Historic Register and the downtown heritage association would have a field day in court. we’re supposed to be out by next summer.

      • So then it will just be an empty abandoned building on the National Historic Register ?? or are they turning it into something? a museum ? And what will happen to the ghost?? I mean the real ghost, not the Ghostt ghost… Ok, I know, I ask too many questions
