What was once a tree-lined, storybook lane in Severna Park has become a scene out of Dr. Seuss' "The Lorax."

Like lifeless trufula trees before the rotating axhackers, the annihilation of trees along Jumpers Hole Road this week is being carried out in the name of progress.

What a shame so much natural beauty has to be sacrificed to "improve" the procession of traffic.
