The park will say that the trees were taken down by storms.

The park "will" say? So the park hasn't said that?

But, I know better than that.

How so?

...and the lake you see in front of the wildcat was not there in the 70's, it's man made.

Shocking news! Next you'll be telling me that WDW's Seven Seas lagoon is man made.

If anyone has been to the park in the 70's they know what it was like.

I visited Deer Park Funland many times. On balance I'll take the park as it is today over what it was then.

The problem with trees is that they get old and they fall down. I know a lot about this. I have practically have a forest of really tall trees in my backyard that are at the end of their lifespan that I have paid a lot of money to not have fall down on my house.

Well I would have just assumed that trees would all outlive us, I didn't realize that some trees have lifespans of only 50 years.

I learned something new today.

I was responding to Timber-Rider lamenting that the beautiful trees from the 70s were torn down by the park...

Wild Adventures has a few cypress trees, but they're in the lake where they don't really help with shade.

Was hoping HFEC would plop in a couple dozen 40-year-old elms, but the only thing Dutch in the park remains those blasted Vekomas...

On the flip side, the East Coast parks tend to have the best shade. Kings Dominion, Busch, Knoebels.

Great Adventure was a leader, but Six Flags is doing their "magic" at its becoming more barren over time.

If they could support less trees, they would have removed them already.
