Trees between street, sidewalk look awful

To The Herald-Whig:

To the tree people: I have lived in Quincy for about 60 years. I cannot remember the trees on the right of way between the street and the sidewalk looking so awful. We do not need to plant new trees.

We have dead, dying and mutilated trees everywhere. We cannot drive more than three blocks in any direction without seeing at least one of these awful trees. If the tree people need something to do to help everybody, start letting people have these awful trees cut down that are on private property. I'm sure that some of these people cannot afford to hire a tree trimmer.

Another thing about these trees is that they are very dangerous in windstorms.

I don't think we could ever be called a tree city until these trees are gone.
