    As an attorney, I am consulted by property owners who want to remove trees without fear of tree-preservation laws.  I cannot advise clients to ignore laws (though tree laws often seem easy to ignore). I can tell clients what a lot of people do: they don’t plant any trees that are protected by tree laws.  And any tree protected in tree laws that is still small enough to be legally killed, is killed.

    Tree laws can be amended, so that every tree is a potential risk that a property owner will be restricted by government in the future alteration of his property.  Tree laws make treeless property the safest route. 

    Tree laws kill trees, as every libertarian knows.  And rightfully so, because tree laws violate private property rights by “socializing” trees.  All freedom is founded on private property.

    The joke about the endangered species act is that if a property owner sees an endangered species on his property he should “shoot, shovel and shut up.”  Under tree-preservation laws it is “chop, chip and chill.”

    Tree laws illustrate the fatal conceit of socialism and its unintended consequences.  Tree-huggers must have fallen out of a stupid tree and hit every branch on the way down.  If public officials were any more stupid, they'd have to be watered weekly.  If their antidisestablishmentarianism continues then more “protected” trees will die.

    My ancestors helped settle Key West and the Curry Mansion is still on the local tour.   As a sixth generation Floridian and a lifelong resident, I treasure the environment.

    Tree laws prove that socialism is environmentally disastrous.  Government built roads through forests, straightened rivers, drained wetlands, cut canals, and subsidized other agricultural uses with taxes and other socialism. The government has already done more environmental damage than private enterprise could ever have afforded to do.  

    Capitalism saves trees from socialism’s destruction.  Capitalists farm trees for paper, and other uses.  Capitalists created alternative forms of power to replace the burning of wood.

    The best environment is a capitalist environment. Trees prove that the color of a healthy environment and the color of money are the same.  Mother Nature is a capitalist. Capitalists are the true greens.   

    Even so, Government threatens tree owners on private property with tree laws.  Tree laws fail to distinguish non-violent private acts from theft and violence.  With tree laws, the government threatens theft and violence against peaceful people.  

    Many jurors do not know that they have the absolute power to acquit if they believe a law is wrong.  

    As an attorney, I have been asked how I sleep at night after representing “tree killers.”  I sleep like a log after I protect peaceful property owners from guilty government.  My counter-question is “how can anyone sleep after defending the statist quo?”

I think that I shall never see
a tree-law as beautiful as a tree
and if the tree-laws do not fall
I may not see a tree at all
