Hey, Portland newbies: Portland has trees, lots of them, including tall, majestic, mature trees that create nice shade canopies on many streets. Please don't destroy them as soon as you find your "dream house". Why don't you enjoy what we have here instead of trying to make it look like the desert wasteland you came from as soon as you arrive? If you don't like trees, don't move here. If you get homesick, try piping some freeway sounds into your bedroom instead.
Stop Killing Our Trees!
