The landmark that shouldn't

I'm all in favor of removing palm trees. They tend to be cute at first, but then their negative qualities take over as they mature: invasive, no shade, few ecological services. So when I see someone cutting down a palm, I'm usually all in favor. But please finish the job!
Ah!  Home Sweet Home...with a 5' stump in the front yard.

The stump has been there so long that locals use it as a landmark, "Just turn left at the big old palm stump..." since it's on a prominent corner.  Don't the home owners feel at least a little embarrassed?  In their favor, they apparently they aren't part of the Green Lawn is Good Club.  Don't Do This!

  1. They need to cut the stump off level, about three feet above the ground, and attach a round table top. Add a couple bar stools, and they can have a trendy pub-style dining area right in their front yard!
