Park Resorts: The War On Nature

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 trees; 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 the 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:

  1. Terrible – is there no council limit / preservation to prevent such destruction? Probably not, I live in a conservation area in London and feel bereft seeing the increasing disappearance of age old tress caused by encroaching development which pays to extend concrete and pluck out every fibre of nature and green in the name of improvement. ‘Homes’ are more property portfolio investments and bombard all areas – the promise of property big bucks means both small-time and bigger developers are insistent to get their way and know how to despite conservation rules. When you buy on the basis of investment – for money not for the obvious love of an area – concern for natural beauty and long-term engagement matters not a jot it seems.
