You are right about Council being a hazard...but give them credit for this as well:
Removing these trees means less oxygen, as trees produce our air. But on the flip side of this coin...Council puts off enough Hot Air to replenish the loss supply from the trees.
That is why our Winter's are mild...not because of the geographical location...but the said...Hot Air Council produces ;-)
One reader commented that Market Street is a Go Cart track. It still will be with or without trees. I've seen a city bus take off a side mirror of a car in front of Hoggard High School...as it was flying towards town. That tore her vehicle up...but never chipped the paint on that bus.
The layout of this city's road system has come forth to haunt us...and yes...the sewer pipes still rupture on a weekly basis.
Leave the trees alone...trim back their branches...and don't cut down a tree because it's a problem, just to plant others to create another problem in the long run. But that is what this city is known for...repetitive foul ups :-)
