Well, I expect things are a bit tidier now when tree felling in the bush happens. I saw quite a few tree felling sites when I was a kid as my father did some tree felling when things were quiet on the farm.
They were ugly ugly places. I did not pick it up at the time, but remembering now, they were bad. Apart from grand trees crashing to the ground, smashing other trees as they fell, and possibly destroying whatever was living in the tree, what was probably the worst, was the spillage of diesel. It went everywhere. Empty fuel drums would be left behind. The chainsaw needed an oil change? Tip the old oil out onto the ground.
If you repeat this through many forests, it is nasty stuff right through so much of our bushland. Yet, to visit the same places now, they would probably look quite ok, revived and survived. Perhaps an environmentalist would disagree after some study, and they may well be correct, but the real issue is the lack of respect for nature. We did things like that because we could and we felt no responsibility to clean up after ourselves.
It is not just in the bush where such things happened. When I was a child, people regularly threw rubbish on the ground, the difference being that much of what was rubbish then would quickly break down, unlike present day plastics. Do that now and you stand a chance of being fined. You will certainly get stared at.
