Dallas has had its share of areas new, and redeveloped, some of which came with the removal of mature trees. At the least, many see doing that as a sad, even unnecessary action. Other times it's done with no blessing from the city--and very little, if any, knowledge by the city.
The latest example comes with the loss of old elms at Casa Linda Plaza, which was to make way for more parking area. The trees were over 70 years old, and their absence is being met with shock.
