The Biscayne Times dug into the mystery of the butchered oak trees at Oak Plaza in the Design District and discovered they had been rotting away for years since the plaza's construction, and that the demolition was just the death blow. It was already too late to save them, and they basically had to come down. On the bright side, DACRA is replacing them with a forest of new oak trees all over the district, including full-size specimens that have already been planted on NE 40th Street and atop the Garden Building.
