I could probably just go back there and hack the thing down, but I don't want the neighbors to dime me out. Miami needs to tighten up their local government if they want to prevent this crap. Like I said, if they wanted to protect the land, they should have put a bid on it, or simply state that there could be no further development or removal of trees without approval.... If you don't have the laws in place to protect it, they can't really complain.
    yeah, I wish they would do that here in CA. People do the most horrible things to trees here and it's all legal.

    Every fall, a big part of the economy in our valley has become "tree specialists" topping all the trees in one's yard, so the owners don't have to prune or clean up. This leaves an ugly, practically shadeless, stunted tree that sends out thousand of tiny "sucker" branches in the spring. Then, people wonder why it's so friggin hot in the summer.

    If it's not that, people will just hack down a perfectly healthy, giant 50+ year old tree and leave the stump...never bothering to ever plant another tree in it's place. Then, they plant grass and water the sh!t out of it every day and wonder why it still turns yellow. They don't seem to grasp the concept that we're basically living in a desert and, with no shade, grass just fries.

    The other thing that bugs me is how the city will butcher a massive old growth tree for the sake of a power line. They do a horrible job and, along with all the other stupid "gardening" going on here, it makes the whole city look like a bomb-shelled hell.

    Trees are the only thing that make me miss the southeast.

    Wow. You guys don't see anything wrong with having to ask permission to cut down your own tree in your own yard, that you own? Provided you own it and not a renter that is. This country is supposed to be free, how on earth is it free when you need permission to do something to you own home / land?

    well, there has to be limits with anything - like, you can't have pool full of sulfuric acid, or alligators, or bonfires of plastic bottles and tires, etc...just because it's on your property. Trees are just as much of an environmental issue.

    Trees play a massive role in helping to regulate the earth's atmosphere and temperatures. Because of the humidity in the south, it's harder to realize the amount of heat that's removed by the shade of a trees.

    Just recently, I got in an argument with my landlord because he didn't want to plant any new trees in place of the old diseased ones he had removed. He didn't mind buying new trees...but he wanted some that didn't drop leaves, fruit or seeds, or that had roots that would come up over the ground that someone (not him) would have to mow over, or roots that interfered with plumbing, etc...basically, he wanted a tree that doesn't exist. So the solution, to him, is to not plant anything until that perfect tree magically appears. In the meantime, he or his wife occasionally come around and water the weeds that are the only thing that will now survive in that area. Re-****!ng-tarded.

I mean, I don't go there buying important sh** like furniture and stuff, but it is what it is.

    My best example is visine. The walmart brand visine costs .89. The cheapest off brand besides that is at CVS for like 4.49....

    Walmart doesn't rule the world for no reason. I mean, yeah, the boogie boards they sell are crap, but people literally throw them in the trash at the end of the week. You think a guy from Kentucky needs a beach chair once he leaves Hilton Head? As long as the POS holds up for 6-7 days, it's all good and it cost 10 bucks. You go to a local specialty store, you are paying $30 for a POS chair.....

    Just saying, for the necessities in life, Walmart pretty much destroys their competition, unless you are into bargain shopping for expired food at that Dollar General....

    I drop $100 a week at walmart, Easy. Big as$ bags of dog food. Pull ups. Detergent.... There is nothing structural in my home from Walmart... But with that being said, sometimes I walk down the isle and see a 1080p, 55 inch flat screen for like $200. If I didn't already have 6 flat screens, I would buy another. Sony is still Sony, even in a walmart.
    Say it isn't so.

    he owns the property right? So it's up to him to decide. Not trying to be argumentative, just how I view ownership and freedom.

    I had the same prob with cutting the trees. After 3 or 4 over zealous "trimmings" across a few weeks no more tree.
