This photo was previously taken 5/2009. You can hardly see the mansion.
I took just the red line from the newer photo and superimposed it on the older photo. You can see trimming has been done
Now we go to 12/22/10 same mansion:
Now how did that happen?
Of course all these photos are taken at slightly different angles and I tried to resize them as best I could based on the corner of the house visible. This isn't a scientific rendering, just a sketch. But it does appear that over the years the mangroves have been trimmed back at the mansion of Mr. John Dubois.
