I'd have to rank tree farming as the #1 thing that disturbs me here in the
South.  Their is nothing more sickening than to collecting some really good
hairstreaks and skippers in a limited semi-native area and to its side and
across the road see nothing but acres and acres of _rows_ of pine trees.
Trees are weeds.


PS   A weed is any plant growing where one does not want it to at.
