What is a tree?

We don't mean to get all existential on you, but it's a question at the heart of a lawsuit inside the Blue Line.  Recently, the organization Protect the Adirondacks secured a victory in an Appellate Division court over continued tree-cutting in the forest preserve.  The state has been in the process of making community connector trails for snowmobiling in the central and southeastern part of the park, but an injunction was put in place a few years ago that halted the proposed 27-mile stretch.  Now the question is how big does a tree have to be in order to be spared for such a project?  It's our feature story this week.
