R.I.P. Trees

When I was eight years old my parents had a story teller come to my birthday party and regale us with the story of The Lorax, via environmentalism. A good time was had by all, and the cake was an ice cream cake, which is perfect for December.

Flash forward twenty years, and much to my dismay trees at SMCM are being TORN DOWN.

Look at this gorgeous beauty. The Tree of Life, so majestic and powerful via age, destroyed with the BLADE OF MAN.

Yes that wonderful tree at the entrance to the Garden of remembrance is no more.

And look, another tree near the White House/Lucille Clifton House.

But why are these trees gettin' chopped up, like so many carrots in the Great Room?

Possible Theories...
  • Captain Planet style anti-environment villain
  • Pruning
  • Disease
  • Gentrification
  • The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers and Sauron/Dr. Jordan needs trees for their respective war machines
Who knows!@1@11!!!!

Would be cool 2 buy some of the tree. Maybe a slice of tree, via slices of pizza???

Big ups 2 @Viet for taking these photos!!!
