Save the trees



On a slow morning, here's an interesting article from Atlanta about the firing of a city arborist, perhaps for too vigorously protecting the city's trees. Developers, who pay big fees there for tree removal, aren't happy about Atlanta's reverence for trees.

It is reminiscent, of course, of some famous tree removal cases in Little Rock -- the most recent a denuding of a hillside to facilitate the view of a cheap motel. On the rare occasions when the city cracks down, the penalties are trivial, hardly a deterrent.
