Sad Day: Cutting down the old maple tree

Two people from a tree company were looking over the neighbor's old maple today as they prepared for their company to cut it down. I'm so sad.

The raccoon and family will most likely be killed - they don't relocate the animals. Also, the bee hive will be destroyed. The wood ducks were inspecting this tree to have their nest this year - I hope they chose another tree instead.

Two old trees on the northeast corner of my block were recently cut down as well. They were well over 100 years old.

I have such an affinity for the trees that when I see them removed like this, just just saddens my heart.
