Today I think I heard Da Bruddas tell a guy to drive up to a huge old tree and mash on the gas to see how the clutch worked.That would do horrible damage to the tree’s skin. The pressure could cause a deep bruise, and introduce decay like an incurable gangrene. Scary! Not to mention the damage to the roots from driving on them.
The tree might rot out totally and fall on you when you are on your way to the bar. Not good. In the future, please recommend using immovable objects that are NOT living beings. We understand that you guys meant no harm, and appreciate your kind consideration of trees in the future.
People for Ethical TREEtment, convenes in Boston next week at the New England Grows trade show and conference. We might have to march down to your offices next Friday, recruiting a few Ents from Middle Earth along the way, so we can begin disarmament negotiations between cars and trees. Does 1 p.m. work for you guys?
