Before and After the trees were put down by the Developer
The Greens Farms Elementary School and the Historic District could not be seen (even during the Winter) due to beautiful mature trees. Today they can, the privacy the neighbors had is gone.
The trees were so dense it looked like a dark forest. That used to be the deer population habitat
The grass is now a swamp, and erosion is everywhere. Trees are constantly falling due to rotten roots.
The soil used to be firm and grass was cut every week. Soil has turned into mud, so grass cutting machine can no longer be used. New canals are opening up everywhere. residents are afraid part of their land will be washed away.
Another view of what used to be a firm soil area with grass— new canals forming every month, soil that turned into mud, and moss everywhere.
