Stickman: Tree City USA? Really?

Stickman (RE: Coeur d'Alene named Tree City USA for 30th year in a row): I saw something recently about our town being awarded another Tree City USA award. Very ironic seeing as how we seem to be doing our best to cut them all down. All over town. And it continues. And we get an award for that. I cringe at that fact. Am I a tree hugger, of course.

Question: Are we sending mixed messages as a Tree City by cutting down 23 trees at the western entrance to our town?
