Hmm, so let me get this straight.

Every year in our region, hundreds of trees are removed to make way for new buildings, parking lots, and widening roads, yet the removal of a single non–native tree to make room for pedestrian and cycling improvements near the Inner Harbour is causing an uproar?

It seems to me that some people just need to hear the words bike lane and they feel obligated to become outraged.
