I’m sure many people have noticed the felling of trees around Table mountain. I know there are supposed reasons why so many have been felled. It’s just pretty sad to see what was once shaded by tall trees is nothing but left over logs and stumps. There is a thread I found on a website where this topic is discussed. Even if they were felled to be replaced by Fynbos, they weren’t indigenous or they drank too much water; it’s still sad to see what was once tall trees shading our mountain, is now barren.
