Who is for some action to protect our green?

One of the nicest parts of my morning walks is passing through the evergreen grove of trees behind the composite high school.

Dear Editor,

One of the nicest parts of my morning walks is passing through the evergreen grove of trees behind the composite high school. The towering trees impart a sense of calm and peace as I pass by.

It is with some dismay that I notice that this grove receives a good deal less than optimum care from the town, or anyone else, for that matter. This summer alone, three trees have come down, and remain laying on the ground, rather than having been cleared away.

As I look around the grove, I notice that there are numerous stumps, all that remain of old and rotting trees that have been cut down and removed.

What is also quite noticeable is that no new saplings have been planted to keep the grove alive. Without new trees being planted, it is only a matter of a few years before the grove is completely gone!

I’m wondering if there are any other folk who live north along 59 Street who use and enjoy the evergreen grove.

If you are out there, perhaps it’s time that we asked our local councillors to take some action to add new evergreens to the grove, so that our children and grandchildren can enjoy the same walk that we do. Think about it, and make a call.
