After my post last week on tree-trimming follies in Burbank, California, I couldn't pass this article by. A man in Nevada is facing 35 years in prison because he felled, topped or killed 60 trees that blocked his view of the Las Vegas Strip. Honestly, you'd think we were druids.

Druids? You got somethin' against Druids? What you mean "we" white man?

Seriously,if he'd been hacking up ailanthus in the 'hood, no charges, no story. Those were some seriously expensive trees he killed. It was the value of the destroyed property that has caused a world o' hurt to come down on this guy. No different than if he'd been sawing off people's roof peaks to "improve" his view
