The shady avenue of beautiful ancient towering trees that I walked under every day for years until this week looks like this today:

Park Resorts: The War on Trees

Courtesy of Park Resorts. I mean, I know that Park Resorts fucking hate┬átrees; fucking big, fat, useless space wasting bastards, taking up valuable real-estate they could be using to further their profits. Like the equally ancient and equally beautiful grove of wild cherry and elm they ripped up while expanding their site to add more ‘luxury lodges’ last year. I’ve watched them hack down centuries old trees for years.

Though I have to say, I don’t see where the profit lies in hacking down these particular roadside trees that mark┬áthe start of the woodland trail. I think in this case it’s because a branch fell from one once in a hurricane and one of their maintenance staff had to actually do some work.

Anyway, it makes me, a few dozen red squirrels and several hundred birds very sad.

In fact, here’s a pic I took of one of the (now forcibly evicted) residents of those very trees in happier times:
