If you go to the Marketplace plaza on U.S. 41 in Collier County this week, you'll notice the aesthetics are a bit lacking. That's because the 140-plus mature live oak trees that once grew in the parking lot have been cut down. "It took my breath away to see them all gone," said Sandy Doyle, a resident who had petitioned for the trees to stay.  The property manager of Marketplace said many of the trees were blocking the tops of the light poles, making the parking lot dark and dangerous at night.
