The Only Good Tree Is a Dead Tree

Along a similar vein as the previous post, are trees worth more dead than they are worth alive? That is the assumption I would make, based on how land is developed for commercial, residential, and other use. I can only surmise that felled trees bring handsome sums as lumber, outstripping any increase in the value of the property they cause. Developers – the evil developers – take a nicely wooded lot and clear-cut it. This results in an unsightly, empty lot; when this is repeated enough times, of course, it has a deleterious effect on the environment.
