It has been a tough summer for some of the trees in my local park. As I posted a few weeks ago, a large diseased tree snapped in a heavy wind. Fortunately there were no injuries. The latest trees to be felled have been healthy, and done intentionally.
I live in a community with a large and strong ‘dog lobby’. Dog owners have been up in arms since the loss of one of their dog runs to the building of a new recreation centre. For months, perhaps years, there has been a debate as to where a new dog run should be situated. Several ideas were presented, but all were rejected for one reason or another.
It appears a decision has been made, a $150,000 decision at that, but sadly one that requires the removal of several trees. You just can’t please all the people all of the time.
