On Sept. 11, before 8 a.m., city tree workers came around to trim trees. I was not home at that time. When I arrived home a little before 8:30 a.m., they had cut branches from two of my oak trees, which the city had not planted.
The trees had been planted by one of my sons in honor his father after he had passed away.
The trees were nice and full and not under any wires. Now, when look out of my kitchen window, all I see are long trunks instead of nice trees.
The city is always complaining about not having money, yet they can go around trimming and cutting
branches and limbs from trees on private property. They gave me no prior notice they were considering trimming the trees.
Instead of cutting trees they have no right to touch, they should spend money getting rid of the raccoons, which might be carrying rabies and are ruining people’s yards.
