T R E E S = spells trouble for Perinton - again
« on: June 21, 2022, 09:50:15 am »
When you read this article regarding dead ash trees, just consider this is just the tip of the iceberg.

How many dead ash trees are there on canal embankment dams? I don't suppose anyone is counting them, however, there must be quite a few. Couple this with the MANY 'end of life' Cottonwoods that are notorious for dropping their brittle and weak branches, and the problem is seriously compounded.

These old and dead trees are a problem, and it looks like the maintenance of them has been neglected, not only by the 'old Canal Corporation', but also the Town of Perinton.

Dead and dying trees can get toppled by the wind, causing a domino effect of otherwise healthy trees falling.

Maybe this broadcast will stir some action and change our politician's minds about having a more robust approach to tree management.

We can't have trees around that are likely to cause the loss of even ONE life, because of weak governments.
