Shade isn't that cool   - especially when it lands  on a fool!

It's something that we knew would eventually happen... a casualty in the Erie Canal Tree War saga. But she's still smiling so it's all good.

This is what happens when shade wins....

I have the answer to that question...

Isn't Donna White the Stop the Canal Clear-Cut member, who with two pictures posted on the group's Facebook Page, has basically refuted the whole arguments about Trees being Safe that the groups's leaders have been making for the past two years.



Wait, isn't Ms. White the same person who has just proven that you can always find some "shade" along the Erie Canal if you are just willing to crawl under the fallen trees along the pathway to enjoy that shade?





Surely Ms. White is trying to sound the alarm for her group's leaders to possible re-examine their position on how safe trees along the Empire Trail are?


Sadly, not one person from the Stop the Canal Clear-Cut group has commented on Ms. White's pictures... hmm.  Instead they all decided to talk about any trees being cut in NY State and how the canal embankment grass is being cut out in Brockport.




Poor Donna White... Not one Comment on her unsafe Tree Falling picture.

Just so you know, the ECNA really likes  that picture, Donna.

I guess the STCC has removed the photo from Donna's post. Probably all in an attempt to hide the subject of this post.

But - there is more to this photo than meets the eye, so I'm glad it was posted.  Do you see where the branches extend to?  They are hanging right over to the water's edge. That means something else is going on that you can't see.  Here's a clue!

See the roots? They grow out as far as the branches, so that means these trees are already penetrating the rip-rap along the embankment dam.

An accident waiting to happen folks!

And here's another one - thanks Donna.



Apparently, according to the STCC, there are no problems with trees on the canal. Oh Really?
