Goodbye UTS Tower Building trees


There used to be trees here

After (what I assume, given their size) a couple of decades shading university students from the Sydney sun, the current round of construction at UTS has uprooted some of the most beautiful trees on campus. Barely a month ago, Clara and I were sharing some lunch at a table under those calming, leafy towers.

Judging from the leftover roots and irregular sized holes in the ground, the trees were cut down and not transplanted. What an absolute waste.
