Do developers have every right?

I saw an article in a local magazine the other day which showed a recent acreage that was going to be developed and the developer had clear cut every tree and bit of wood from it. Someone had complained to the city council in HRM and their representative had said, "That developer had every right to cut the wood off his property. The double entendre of that phrase "every right" stuck in me like a malignant lump. Why doe the developer have "every" right? Shouldn't Mother nature have a right too? —JL
