Photo detail

Luke Wieberg, 21⁄2, watches out the sliding glass door as men in yellow hard hats cut down the tree that used to hold his swing. Through the years, it has been acceptable to have the pine tree trimmed to keep it safely out of the overhead power lines, but now the Wiebergs have been told it has to come down completely, much to Luke’s dismay.

Each morning for the past couple weeks, toddler Luke Wieberg has walked to the back glass door in his home to see if the trees are still standing in his back yard.
