    Kyle Destafano, It's not just one person who's upset! It his my heart that they destroyed that beautiful tree. I don't know of any other like it. I used to enjoy sitting in its shade and my mother in law and I loved that tree. What a disgusting waste. It was a rare beauty, but like many historic and beautiful things in Florida, it was dozed in the name of progress. SHAMEFUL!
