Urban Logging

After years of wrangling and delays, the logging of the Tiffany Park Woods is underway. It was only last week that I took this picture after being awakened by the chain saws.

This is the same location today.

The woods are no match for the heavy equipment assembled against them. I am over it. There’s still a long way to go, but I’m pleased to see many trees around the perimeter still standing. I wonder if the select few marvel that they were chosen while those on the ash heap wonder what they did wrong.

I assume all the displaced animals have been welcomed to new homes. Refugees of sorts. It will be interesting to watch as houses go up.

Progress I guess.

  1. Progress indeed…unfortunately, but at least you had it for a long time, and hopefully the perimeter trees will remain

  2. Some progress is just not worth the cost. At least your perimeter trees will leave you with a sense of the former woodland.
    Best wishes, Pete.

    • True. The entire neighborhood was against the project but no way to stop it. I’m just surprised at how fast the logging is proceeding. Houses by next year I imagine!

  3. You’re taking it well. . . .

    “Weeping may endure for a night,
    But joy comes in the morning.”
    Psalm 30:5
