Not saying any anything like that, I'm just saying that you don't get to complain when something that was only ever meant to be temporary finally goes away..

Seems a bit mad to me, and I'm not surprised the residents are pissed off.
replanting it with native vegetation would be better for the local ecosystem anyway
