We have been provided with some disturbing images of tree destruction; or as we are told the ‘tree care’ efforts made around the area of Stuttgart, Germany; by a contact who travels in the area each day. Some pictures are also from areas in the same region, places named ‘Ofeld’ and ‘Ilsfeld’.
It appears that the trees are cut and shredded within just a day or so; maybe even less.
It seems the authorities are only allowed to do the tree destruction until the end of February; and not between March and October; for reasons that the / any birds still in the area breed after February. With all the trees being destroyed; trees which would normally supply a good food source for the young birds, and not many trees left anyway for parent birds to construct nests in; what are they supposed to do ? – build nests in the motorway lampposts !!
Word is that the tree destroyers are ‘really going for it’.
Why; what is the real reason – we just do not know. But we do know that breeding birds are now being forced by good ol’ man to up and venture to other areas where they can build nests and forage for food for their young.
Sad world isn’t in ?
If you know why this is being done; or the reasons for it, then we would love to hear from you. Send us a message through the usual ‘contact’ route – thanks.
One thought on “Germany: Stuttgart Region Tree Destruction Before the Birds Nest in March. Will Pairs Have Any Trees To Nest In And Supply Food For The Young ?”
Unfortunately, you can’t expect that an ignorant being became savant…
Too many idiots setting in the wrong seats, can only make things worst. We shall hope that birds will find other places to nest… but tell me if I’m wrong, ignorance has no borders! Serenity :-)c
