Chainsaw Carmen takes a few out

I see that some of the elm trees in the North Park Blocks are not doing so well. You have to wonder if they've been kept up properly by the parks department. Portland City Hall bureaucrats have a way of letting things they don't like deteriorate; then when they remove them, it's to "relieve blight."

That's probably what they'll do in the South Park Blocks, to make way for their idiotic bike freeway that hardly anybody really wants. Neglect and remove. There are entire neighborhoods in Portland like that.

Anyway, if you're in the North Park Blocks, watch out for falling trees. Among many other hazards.


  1. The policy now is to neglect everything between the foot of the West Hills and the east county line.
