Some rocks are excellent for chocking RV tires on a hill, particularly when camping in the boonies, so they serve a useful purpose.
Let's ponder that awhile...
I also didn't think about an environmental impact statement, one would probably have to accompany any potential boulder ban.

Sarcasm aside, when we travel we sometimes wonder how long ago the huge boulders fell.

Not just boulders,- We were in a State Park in South Carolina, site was under a large pine tree. About 30-40 ft above the Mh was a bare dead branch about 4 " diameter and 5-6 ft long. Moved the MH crooked on the site to clear, and showed the ranger. "Not much we can do".....
It wasn't there about a month later when we returned.

Years ago I had to work on a tower site in Pineville KY that was in Chained Rock State Park. There was a huge boulder that someone had wrapped what looked like the anchor chain from a battleship around and anchored to keep it from rolling down the mountain into downtown Pineville. I guess it solved the problem of the townfolk looking up the mountain and wondering when!

On our first trip we were under a live aspen and felt safe from branch issues. The wind picked up, not crazy but gusting into the 20 mph range on occasion, and the top 15 feet of a live healthy aspen missed our windshield by about 2'. The dead pine branches around us did fine.

We did require an underwear replacement though...
