Baton Rouge cutting down 100 year old Live Oaks....



Advocate Article

“Baton Rouge is becoming such an ugly, generic city,” Laird said. “Great cities do not cut down their great live oaks.”


Agree with this.

You people complain about traffic but when new roads are built you complain too?

Deal with it.

It's been an ugly, generic city for as long as I can remember. Take away LSU and it's Lake Charles.

You people complain about Baton Rouge being an ugly generic city, but when something like this happens you think it's OK?

I'm no tree hugger, but I know the city parish knows our Live Oaks are sacred.

I'm sure this was carefully debated before such action was approved. Gotta trust our elected officials to do what is best.

Well considering I hate most people I say let the trees live and frick BR, trees just chill and give you something to climb, people just suck.

Not the Garden District. Quite a nice residential area for Baton Rouge.

What would you rather have, random trees and the clusterfrick that is Jones Creek, or some actual road improvement?

Well how else are they going to fit more Chili's, TGI Friday's and Bonefish Grill (best seared Ahi tuna in BR)?

there are still plenty of tree is baton rouge.
i get the whole it's a 100 years old and it's cool a live oak being around that long, but i bet there was an old live oak right in the middle of the living room of the house they live in at some point in time. it's long over due for that project. i avoided that stretch of road the best i could when i lived in the area.

Wasn't Baton Rouge just recently named the most treed city in America. I guess the reporter didn't get that either. I love all the people that bitch about traffic but when new roads are to be built they bitch about construction and what needs to be removed for the construction.

There are a lot of users on the droppings that are quick to pull the "pussification of America" trigger yet they are also some of the first people to whine about the cutting down of some trees.
