Honestly, I'd like to see the Stadium Woods stand because it adds to the character and aesthetic appeal of VT's gameday. I love it and would hate to see them go. That being said, putting trees above the humanbeings who may get jobs as a result of this project is completely inaappropriate. The trees are not the most important thing. They are replacable, inanimant objects. With regard to the disruption to the echo system, nature does that by itself frequently, so please spare me the arguements about saving the fluffy little woodland creatures. Those that can adapt will. Those that can't will follow Darwin's law. I hope the administration can find a suitable alternative site so both sides can be satisfied. Lots of wide open spaces around the area so we can definately agree on that, but let's get our priorities straight: people are more important than trees.
Sorry but your argument makes no sense. It's not like if we save the trees that it won't get built. The job will still happen but in a different location. No one is suggesting that trees are more valuable than people.
