Larry that is terrible and I sure do hate to hear that they will be cut. Its a darn shame really that some others progress, destroy others. Sighing!

Well, it's for the greater good, but it's a shame. Can you take cuttings? Don't crape myrtles tend to sucker or something? I wouldn't know because they are barely hardy here. But I do sympathise, remember a few years back the Wrath of God Tree Trimming Company came thru our neighborhood and crossed my fence to hack down several crabapples and dogwoods that weren't even in the right of way. Just keep a close eye on those fellows so they don't overstep their bounds. (I guess we should look at it as a good sign though, if they are reactivating power lines it must mean new development somewhere in your area)
The end is nothing, the journey is all.

Oh Larry, what a pity and so many! Do they really ALL have to go? There are one or two pics where they look quite far from the border.
