Hungry rabbit teeth render many trees barkless and, eventually, dead.
We support tree life however sometimes it all gets a bit too much!
Michael (ace photographer) from near Edmonton, Alberta Canada left a comment to this posting. Spring (where is it) and lamantations on the sub-zero temperatures. It must be cold up at Fort McMurry the epicenter of the Athabasca Oil Sands mining operation. Read and weep!
Also see March 2009 National Geographic article, The Canadian Oil Boom, Scraping Bottom. Read and weep also.
Spare a thought.
