Tree Trimming Starts For Megaloads

Sharon Cousins protests as a crew from T.R.E. Tree Service prunes trees to make way for Imperial/Exxon megaloads along Washington Street in Moscow on Monday. The megaloads will now be diverted up Highway 95 through Moscow, the Palouse, Coeur d'Alene, and then east on I-90 toward Billings, Mont. Brandon Macz's Daily News story here.

Question: Do you consider tree-trimming to accommodate megaloads to be the root of evil, as the protesters do?
