There is a line of wood chips and sawdust where yesterday there were trees on Lombard. It never makes me any less furious, any less sad. Amongst the few remaining bits of green, shook loose and broken, there was an empty birds' nest on the sidewalk. The only worthwhile feat of engineering left on the block, it seemed wrong to leave it there. It deserves better. It deserves eggs and hungry babies, really. But I'll do what I can. Half a block later, I found a window-box, empty but for a bit of good dirt. I'm as happy about the dirt as I am the box.

You know, mature trees break up the sidewalk and people's foundations, so the cities hate them and kill them before they reach maturity. Taking steps to keep the trees babyish as long as possible makes them easier for governments to deal with. The same may be true of humans.
