"MnDOT project manager Joeb Oyster told Becker County commissioners that there are areas along Highway 34 that have a lot fewer trees than the project area, so after the trees are removed “it will match very well with the rest of the scenic corridor.”"

So, MnDOT's Oyster says clearing wooded areas so they resemble areas without many trees will be a plus for the Scenic Corridor?


Applying Oyster’s logic, then MNDOT should clear cut every tree from the MN border east of the Red River across the entire state. That way the entire state will “match” because that’s how nature should work.
