Notice the large white pine logs stacked up for timer. The following quote is from parks and recreation's presentation to the city tree commission.

"Our Findings

Virginia pine volunteer trees cover most of project area.
White pine under story.
Timber quality is low."

It looks like the city failed to tell the whole truth about what trees that would be cut down in the park. And don't forget about the oaks, and the other hardwood trees like hickories and sourwoods that are also getting cut down. No mention of them in the report.  Posted by Picasa
