Environmental Writing

I wonder what this scene would look like without the french broom, hemlock, and thistle? Would more water fill this vernal pool? Would this willow change from a tree to a thicket? What plants would fill this space in their stead? And how dense would they grow? What would the animals lose or gain from their removal? Would the spotted towhee lose a place of shelter and refuge? Would the oaks have room to breath and grow mighty? How did we allow this place to change? These conditions to be? - Michael Mees
