Thank you for this comment Lydia. A similar perspective I have is that people usually consider ownership of trees (and their fates) an "individual right." What is often not recognized is that many peoples right to enjoy trees and benefits is ALSO an individual right.. As such, I find it a misnomer to pit "individual rights" against "communal benefits". It really is individual rights vs individual rights. I know this is a slightly different nuance than your recognition of trees as their own living beings, but process-wise, I think it is relevant to the discourse on matters like this.

if only more of us would consider trees and land as not something that is owned, but rather, something that is leased while we are on this earth, on that piece of property. Trees often outlive generations. They don't belong to us.

Farming is already a big part of Concord. And it should stay that way.

One third of the population of Concord is over 65. These citizens would like to stay in Concord, so let's put time and money into making this possible. $95,000,000 for a high school that students will be in for four years and I believe the budget for the Harvey Wheeler Center is something like $300,000. (I am open to correction about that figure). We need to foster and value the people who have been here for decades and plan to stay. Consider them cultural and historic resources.
