First of all, meter-thick oak trees go a little beyond "landscaping" - if you doubt this, head out to a lumber yard and buy a few truckloads. Putting aside the fact that they're some of the city's most iconic and beautiful trees, the lumber's value alone is colossal. Should they be cut down to build another office tower, I'd hope they at least save the wood and put it to good use.

As far as the need for another tower goes, we've already established that there's absolutely no shortage of office space downtown. I'd like to see the school board remain downtown as much as anyone else here, but spending tens of millions of dollars building another tower while existing buildings are left to rot isn't going to help our problems.
