Sheer mad­ness

Whitsunday Times - - WHITSUNDAY VIEWS -

CAN you imag­ine Tahiti or Fiji or Hawaii or any other trop­i­cal hol­i­day des­ti­na­tion with­out co­conut trees?

Sway­ing palm trees on a walk on the palm fringed beach is one of the things tourists en­joy on their trop­i­cal hol­i­day des­ti­na­tion.

To start cut­ting down the palm trees in the Whit­sun­day re­gion to save a few dol­lars in main­te­nance is ab­so­lute stu­pid­ity.

I am not a “gree­nie” but to oblit­er­ate the trop­i­cal at­mos­phere by re­mov­ing the palm trees is sheer mad­ness.

What next from Mayor Whit­ney? Please lobby your coun­cil­lors to stop this tragedy from hap­pen­ing.

Ro­gin Tay­lor,
