Speak for the trees. Definitely keep my old friends, the two Doug firs that, I hear, may be at risk. They have given me (and anyone who wants) their gifts of shade, scent, and sights of red-shouldered hawks, as well as their quiet, stately presence. The sign by the trees says they were planted in 1916, probably moved there from upstream in the park. A few trees do not a forest make or even old growth — those are systems of interrelated trees and other vegetation, etc.
