That really sxcks. Total overreaction to a few incidents sounds like.<quoted text>
There were some. So instead of removing the hazardous trees, they removed all the trees, including those with no defects, and those that were leaning away from the road, and those whose fall zone was not even near the road. It was a logging operation, not a selective cut. And then the paper published puff piece on how nice a thing they were doing. The Merritt Parkway Conservancy rolled over totally on this one.
All they had to do was remove a selected number of the trees.
Rt 8 is still a pretty ride. Mountain views etc.
