Is it me or is North Delta losing all its trees?
When my family moved here in 1968, each yard had lots of nice, tall trees. Over time things change, people move, houses get run down and are ripe for redevelopment. Why must the developers remove all the trees? It sure is not because they are diseased.
I’ve watched council meetings and time and time again the only one trying to save trees is Lois Jackson. The rest of the council are chop happy, always in favour of the developers. What is wrong with them?
Houses keep getting bigger and lot sizes are getting smaller. We are starting to look like Burnaby. Tiny little lots, all house, no green. And they say the trees are replaced. Go for a drive and see.
“Replacement trees” usually are spindly little things that don’t stand a chance for survival. With the terribly hot weather we have had, not to mention the air quality, trees are beneficial for shade and to produce oxygen. Greedy developers should be ashamed and made to keep healthy trees.
Come on people. If you care at all about the environment call the council members. Make them care. ’Cause they sure don’t now. Oh, and by the way, an election is coming this fall…
