They could have used a little more privacy, but peeing on a tree seems a perfectly logical course of action for boys with nowhere else to go.

I have to say I think for kids under 5 it's fine.  I don't think anyone needs to be concerned about forming lifelong urban tree-peeing habits with such young kids.  They will grow out of so many things, and they should grow out of this, especially if parents start letting them know that it is best to find privacy when they can.  My one concern is about creepy folks that might be interested in getting a peek, makes my stomach turn to think about it. We bring a potty everywhere, and usually try to find a little privacy, but sometimes it's impossible.  Our LO is petrified of public toilets, but happy to drop trousers and pee in the grass or use his own mini potty chair.  For me it can mean avoiding a huge tantrum and maintaining potty learning successes.
