Frontierland: Would somebody please remove these tree stumps?

On the 2nd day of being opened, you can still see traces of how the park was unveiled in a rush. Are these tree stumps intentional? Did somebody forget the sod? Or maybe this is just part of the Wild West Theming. That must be it. Sad to say, but nowadays, I rarely enter through the Frontierland Gate; other than a few pin and souvenir stores, not much is happening on the other side. See more vintage Disneyland photos at my website.

I read somewhere that the stumps infront of the Frontierland stocade were artificial. They were placed there so that guest would know where they got the trees to build the stocade. I think it was a strech of the imagination back then, too.

I like the tree stumps, just a small detail that most people probably didn't notice, but it gave a definite "frontier" feel to the entrance.

I think that at one time there were small indian tipis (or am I thinking of concept art?).
