An entire woods is disappearing. Oak woods that have been there since before I was born....and who knows how much longer than that. The land was in a trust and then the land owner died and left it to some college someplace who apparently sold it to a cooperate farmer. Center pivot irrigators will inhabit part of what was Native Prairie and the Oak Woods.
Now sadness for the Oaks that sheltered deer and probably some coyotes. When I was growing up it was a shady pasture for cows.
Sometimes change can be good...sometimes us old folks that remember how things used to be 70 years ago should just accept change.
