The trees in this picture are in the Edgewood felling zone. If they are chopped down, hikers in the forest will get a clear rear view of the hospital, the new stem-cell research building, and the power plant.

Edgewood – Most of these trees would be felled.

    I would love to share with you a picture I took today. I don’t see a similar one on your website. I don’t see a place to attach it.
    I’ll check out the blog.
