What do you think of Local Councils telling us to plant trees while they are cutting them down?

Councils are slashing down established trees on bogus "Elf and Safety" grounds!
And telling us to PLANT trees!
Update: At the same time, they are paying a fortune to some "So-called" Artist to produce a bloody great spiked monstrosity that drops huge spikes of steel all about the place!
This is the trouble when a bunch of semi-literates get in positions of power.
Update 2: Hi Cycwynner
I believe that the recent fires in Greece were caused because you can build on land with NO trees on it.
So,builders just set fire to the woods and claimed that there were no trees. Therefore they could build on it!
A few people got burned to death. But business is business!
