Tree killer

Isis Town and Country - - Opinion -

RE. NewsMail item on Au­gust 7 – “Bush­care plant­ing Trees in Woodgate”. Un­for­tu­nately, some­one has killed about 60 new trees planted along the fore­shore. Of the 300 plus trees planted by Bush­care, only this sec­tion of ap­prox­i­mately 60 from 5th Av­enue north, have mys­te­ri­ously died. This seems a bit odd to me, as pre­vi­ous at­tempts to plant trees along this same 100-me­tre sec­tion have met with the same fate. The trees fil­ter the salt wind on the houses, pro­vide shade on the path and beach, pro­mote grasses to grow be­neath them, and at­tract birds. All of th­ese ad­van­tages don't seem to mat­ter to some peo­ple it seems. If the per­pe­tra­tors of this crime are found, then they should be charged as a crim­i­nal. The beach be­longs to all, not just a few self-serv­ing in­di­vid­u­als. Gra­ham Haras Woodgate
