Enviro-Barney Climbs Wrong Tree
Leucadia-4:35pm, January 30, 2009.
Jobless hippy kid climbs "tree" in Orpheus Park in weak attempt to stave off tree trimmer's axe.
Apparently, Drew (the tree climber) doesn't read the Leucadia Blog.
At first I wanted to tell the kid, "Dudebro, don't you read the Leucadia Blog? There are trees that provide community value on L101 that are being cut down without adequate justification. Heck, the cypress tree is being cut down because there is some dead canopy and that is not a complete argument that the tree poses a liability or that it suffers from a terminal illness."
Then I realized that I didn't want this kid to have anything to do with the L101 trees.
