Today's MiceChat Roundup banner grabbed my attention. It's something I've thought about from time to time, but this really makes me realize how the trees surrounding the Castle make it appear smaller.
Here's a couple more.
Some of the trees in the banner are in front of the Castle in the center of the hub. Those don't seem to be much of a problem at all. If you're standing right in front of the Castle, you don't notice the trees behind it and to the sides as much. But when you're coming down Main Street it dawns on you how small the Castle really is. I know these trees are probably almost as old as the park itself, and there's really no way to "trim" them without removing them entirely (which I generally don't like the idea of cutting down old trees). I'm not a tree expert, but maybe they're even still growing. The Castle needs to have trees around it, no doubt. They help give it a more natural look. At least until they grow taller than the castle itself.
What are y'all's thoughts on this? Should something be done to fix this, or should Disney just let the trees be?
