@Denny Jump: Thank you very much, Denny. I am a true lover of nature, especially the trees. Watching my city grow like some kind of renegade developer's fantasy, devouring our urban forest in the process, makes me puke.
What a strong statement this makes . . clearly lost on the perpetrators.

@Ronnie 2¢: I love your choice of the word "perpetrators". Apt !
Et oui la nature diminue de jour en jour pour laisser place au béton !

@Martine Libouton: "Make way for concrete" would be a far more truthful slogan for companies like this one!
They certainly know how to crap on their own doorstep. Well documented

@grouser: I often see large advertisements painted on the fencing perimeters of large scale developments, depicting happy hipsters with loads of disposable income as they move through a lush tableaux of trees, flowers, retail shops... then I look up over the ad and see nothing but gigantic homogenous towers built not to last or make an aesthetic impression, but to fill select bank accounts. Puke-worthy. Thanks for the comment, mister g.
Wow...Very strong !!

@Mhelene: I was hoping so; thank you!
Yes indeed! Good personal reflexion

@Gérard: You can feel my indignation, I think. Thanks very much.
Clever title! Seeing the sawn off tree trunk adds a feeling of grief.

@Ruthiebear: Another very appropriate descriptive word: "grief"... thanks, Ruthie.
A said state of developing when tree preservation is not mandated. This speaks volumes!

@Steven: One of the mitigating realities for me as a "small town guy" living in Toronto was always the amount of trees we have here. Each and every one that gets chopped down for no other reason than "development" is a scar on the landscape and psyche. Thanks, Steven.
superbe ces deux plans

@Existence Artistique: Merci beaucoup.
A fine picture that makes a very strong statement. Right on target!

@Don: That was my hope; thanks very much.
I know how much you like the nature Rick, and how much that has to hurt you to see the city devouring the nature, the trees, and invading the territory ! Especially to make so bad constuctions ! I agree with you ! well seen and framed !

@Anna Cherer: An excellent comment, thank you. I do love things about my city, of course, but this out of control and reckless growth is not one of them. Luckily I get to live half the time in Elora, a two hundred year old stone village on a river with a deep beautiful gorge, where heritage and nature are appreciated.
Development has many costs for the environment. A sobering prediction I heard recently is that the population of the planet could increase by 50 percent in coming decades. Where will all these people go?

@Steve Rice: Thanks for the concise comment, Steve. I guess the inevitable "solution" for this booming global population will be an even more intense concentration within the cities. Density to the max.
such beautiful composition, focus, DOF, colors & lights!

@omid: Thanks very much.
big city life!

A shame to see, new structures going up. I like big cities, but, this is ridiculous. We have the same thing in San Francisco. I was taking with a friend who lives in New York City, same thing there.
