LETTERS: Who ordered tree-trimming?

To the Editor:

I was appalled to see the "tree trimming" recently done on Old Mill and 60th streets south of Peabody.

Surely professional arboriculturists could have been consulted. Actually someone should be fired — who gave the word or who did the work??

Ironically a very nice job of trimming old hedge trees is easily visible from U.S.-50 on the north side of the road near Newton!

Old hedge trees are hard to kill so probably these trees will survive, but the sheer brutality of the attack and the disgraceful appearance of our roadside is hard to stomach.

Whoever did the butchering, I hope you find it hard to sleep at night!

A Marion County taxpayer,
