Having teenaged RPG leads is really cool until you stop being a teenager yourself. Do you remember being seventeen? You're a dumbass at seventeen! I wanna be saved by the guy who's twenty-seven. He's at least payed taxes. He knows how to do shit. He can drive.

I'll bet EA razed the forest down.
The intent is to provide players with a sense of pride and accomplishment for planting different trees and shrubberies.
As for cost, we selected initial values based upon data from the world's top most aggressive companies currently deforesting the Amazon rain forests. Among other things, we’re looking at average per-logger deforesting rates, and incremental growth of livestock flatulence. We’ll be making constant adjustments to ensure that planting trees to save our planet still give players challenges that are compelling, rewarding, and of course attainable prior to passing the point of no return, at which point mankind is doomed, also subject to matching price increases on the seed packs.
We appreciate the candid feedback, and the passion the community has put forth around the current topic of tree planting, trimming shrubberies and pruning flowers both on our forums and across numerous social media outlets.
Our team will continue to make changes and monitor community feedback and update everyone as soon and as often as we can.
Thanks, and happy planting!

I'm imagining that all this clear land is because Gabe cut down the forest first, just so he could plant trees to absolve himself.
