Fortunately, some municipalities have ordinances for tree removal. Where
I once lived it was called The Shade Tree Commission. Healthy trees
could only be removed up to a certain distance from the house footprint,
or when the tree would interfere with construction. Those developments
retained the original trees between houses.
I have never seen a squirrel dig a hole in my yard. That doesn't mean
that I doubt that yours are, but it's just curious.
The f***in' mother rabbits that dig half softball sized holes in the
grass and then squeeze 3 or 4 bunnies in it really piss me off. I mowed
up two of them a couple of weeks ago, and relocated the last surviving
one in the woods.
That happened to my mother the last time she mowed the lawn. She killed one,
nearly had a breakdown, and then about 5 minutes after she started again,
another popped up out of a different hole and was killed. That was 30 years
ago, and she still hasn't gotten over it. Of course, when you don't have a
garden and the holes are very small, you think bunnies are cute and feel
awful when you shred them.

Right now squirrels are harvesting nuts and burying them wherever they
can. Around here they prefer my garden and mulched flower beds. They are
also busy eating to build body fat before winter. I have Oaks and a Shaggy
Bark Chestnut in my back yard. They like to sit above my shed and eat the
Chestnuts letting the nut's covering to shower down on the roof of my
shed. Come next spring and early summer I will be busy pulling new Oak
trees from my flower beds growing from the acorns the squirrels buried
