recently read in the news that HRM has plans to improve (??) the conditions at Point Pleasant Park. Basically, they want to eliminate 80,000 trees from a section of 100,000 trees in PPP. In the article, you'll see that they plan on leaving the 80,000 felled trees to rot and provide nourishment for the forest. I'm not an expert on wildfires, but I think I know enough that you need to keep the floor of the forest clear of debris. I can only think that these felled trees would create a tinderbox that will burst into flames from a discarded burning cigarette. Are they simply being cheap, so that the company awarded the contract won't have to deal with the cost of disposing of these trees? Or is there a condo developer that wants to acquire this prime piece of property, after it has been leveled by fire? Google "summer tree-thinning post-Juan."
