I fail to understand the city sponsoring the destruction of trees because some disgruntled person feels they obstruct the view. Trees are part of the view and are good for the environment. There should be an ordinance protecting them. On our street, at least three trees have been butchered. One of these is on the condemned list. Particularly offensive are those who move into the neighborhood and complain about the trees that have been there for years.
Disclosure – our pine tree defied threats to its existence and died of natural causes many years later.
