Poor Trees

There's a lot outside our subdivision that has been for sale for several months. Apparently in an effort to increase the appeal of the lot, the sellers decided to demolish all of the trees. What was once a beautiful lot thick with hardwood and pine trees is now a barren plot of dirt. There are still piles of tree limbs scattered throughout the lot and whenever we drive by and Dawson sees them he says "poor trees." The other day he told me "trees are sad, they got chopped down." Then he looked at the woods across the street said "those trees are happy." Many times when we're out for a walk, drive, or playing at the park, Dawson will look around and comment "beautiful trees." I'm glad he recognizes and appreciates this beautiful place we live.
