This is from the construction of the new disc golf course. This is what the city called a passive use of the land. This hillside and valley use to be covered with wild flowers like galax, flame azalea, wild orchids. Now everything less than 4" in diameter has been cut down and bulldozed. Many of the trees that were cut down were flowering dog woods, an important understory tree for wildlife. Posted by Picasa
