We Like Our Trees

We have a fairly good tree ordinance in the city now with appropriate restrictions for cutting down trees and fines for those who don't comply. But we've respected our trees around here for quite a bit longer than the tree ordinance has been around. If there's a good tree where we need a parking lot, the tree gets to stay; witness this 150+ year-old oak tree in the lot at Fred's. I've looked at it for so long that I'd forgotten that it might be unusual to some. I like living where it's the norm.
