And destroy any sign that there was a natural habitat in this state (links to tbo) all to make a dollar. Amazing isnt it.

Well, I guess the OP meant that Jacksonville is north of Tampa...

Actually, they're taking down trees on their own privately-owned property. While I don't necessarily disagree with laws protecting large trees (to varying degrees) on private property, it is entirely dishonest of you to refer to those as 'our trees' - it is as nonsensical as claiming that someone who buys a lot in Florida and builds a home on it is 'building on our land'.

I must have missed it. What northern developers? By the way, when a developer, or anyone else, buys a property, the trees become their's not YOURS or anybody else's. If the tree has to go, it goes. They plant new trees in most developments. Old trees are going to die off in due time anyway.

Our developer is putting down nicer trees to look at (palms). There are plenty of spaces where natural habitat hasn't been removed that I can visit. He's planting more than palms - pretty much everything from this area - and live oak as well.

Another thing I wonder about is where all these Florida Purists were when the phosphateand limestone mining was tearing up the landscape. Not only phosphates, but other heavy minerals also. Where we they?

My thoughts exactly. Also developers have been tearing out natural vegetation where ever and whenever possible for the past 40+ years with hardly any natives/locals batting an eyelash.

Yes, how true. Shows how phoney some can be. Big hate of northerners for some reason.

I think there's resentment of the fact a good portion are more economically well-off than many of the natives/long time locals.
