Everyday I passed a stand of of what appeared to be mostly spruce and poplar on my way to work. It provided a nice barrier between a subdivision and two very busy roads. Thursday morning it was there, Friday morning gone. In it's place was an excavator and a very large chipper sitting among piles of dirt and brush.
Probably going to be another bank of row houses or a small strip mall with a gas station and 7-11. They obviously made no attempt to harvest any timber in such a short time. Sad really. Like the song said you don't know what you have got until it's gone.

Right you are.  "take paradise & put up a parking lot."  I hate to see it, too.  Lots of money to be made, and lots of people who want to make it!
