Letter to the Editor: Dead trees a danger

by | Oct 30, 2019 | Letter to Editor

To the Editor:

I’m sure that many of my fellow citizens have observed the many dead trees lining the sides of our town roads. Many branches hanging over the roads.

A month ago we witnessed first-hand what happens when a large tree falls. There was no high wind at the time a huge oak tree with no visible signs of being a threat fell across the road between our home and our neighbor’s. It took out electricity and it took several hours to clear the road. A few minutes before it fell a car was approaching. Thank goodness the car wasn’t a few minutes earlier.

This is a present danger with winter and ice storms and heavy snow taking down trees and limbs.

Please, those who are our town representatives, do something before someone is injured or worse!

— S.A. White, Hopkinton
