A nearby town recently opened its new plate-glass bus station. Along the pedestrian side of the station, with its bleak concrete blocks for benches, is a row of equally bleak square tubs, each with a young tree stuck incongruously in the middle and with each tree flanked by two powerful LED spotlights embedded in the soil, pointing uselessly into the sky.
Who are responsible for these all-to-common, dystopian, urban schemes? Trees confined to tubs often die or are permanently stunted through dehydration and lack of nutrients. Apart from the main problem of sky-polluting LEDs, the trees could have been planted at ground level. :roll:
