    Les arbres peuvent être plantés et cultivés. Vous ne pouvez pas reconstruire la cathédrale la plus emblématique de France sans eux.

    Sight of felling tree is never a positive development.

    I’ve been there and I can honestly say that it was a dead zone…. a dark empty cave. I’ve felt closer to God on a plateau up in the mountains…

  17. Whoever complaining here about the falling of a few select trees, while typing that on a computer/phone who’s caused considerably more exotical damage… Is a hypocrite

  18. Don lemon is somewhere crying right now.

    Haven’t the French heard of laminates? More appropriate modern materials could easily be disguised as real oak.
    As this does is drive the price for an already expensive commodity, plantation French Oak.
