    From the looks of things, the housing project will not be built on the bog site, but will be built extrememly close. The residence appear to be concerned that excessive runoff and sewage problems will destroy the bog ecology. I hope this will not be another Radio Tower Site.

    Granted, you don't remove until the destruction begins. Just be ready in case something goes seriously wrong, and the plants start to suffer for it. Remove them only if you have too.

    I did a little research today, including looking at an aerial view of the area. There are a few commercial buildings, several homes, and some roads around the "bog" and pond. It isn't pristine habitat, but it's as undeveloped as you hope to see around there. The proposal described in the article would certainly dwarf what's already in the pond/marsh's watershed.

    I talked with a co-worker who grew up a couple towns away and he'll try to see what's growing there. He can't this weekend, but will shoot to get there in the next few weeks.

    One thing to remember about place names in New England is they often describe things as they were hundreds of years ago. Many a cranberry pond or rattlesnake mountain has been without its namesake for generations.

    Clearcutting followed by a couple hundred years of farming followed by modern development and roads have done in thousands of bogs. Granted, a New England bog is a just stage in a glacial lake's transition to forest. But human activities have greatly accelerated that change.
