Growing up in Sydney one could stand on a suburban hilltop and the vista was a sea of red roofs. Do the same thing now and it's all green tree cover. Fair enough, but when did trees become more important than people?
How can elderly folk like my mother be allowed to fall and break a shoulder when the council neglected to repair a broken footpath, constantly damaged by tree roots, rather than chop the bloody thing down?
Why is it that driving around residental areas at night one regularly needs high beam due to overgrown tree foliage reducing the effectiveness of street lighting, often rendered useless?
Trees; I'm over them.
