clear cutting mid cape highway cape cod

A couple of weeks ago I was driving down the mid-Cape highway as I often do. I spend a lot of time on this stretch of road en route to Cape Cod's beaches, bays, harbors and estuaries because I like to go fishing.

On this day I noticed a clear cutting operation going on and I watched in utter disbelief as I saw tree after tree being cut down. This sparked me to act immediately, and the result is the information presented in this blog post.
