Bikes chained to trees

Do you think people should chain their bikes to trees and other foliage? I can see how this practice could damage some of the beautiful greenery we have here in town. But I can also see that you need to lock up your bike and sometimes a tree is the most sturdy, accessible structure around. I also would not be surprised if there is already some city ordinance that addresses the practice.


What do you think? Do you have any suggestions for lock up that leaves Mother Nature out in the case that there is no formal bike rack? Do you think we need more bike racks? Where would you like to see more racks put in?
