Let's put thought into what trees we plant | Letter
It’s spring and the trees along Highway 20 on the north entrance to the city will soon again be able to block visibility to the small businesses.
These businesses are visible while the trees are bare; however, the busy tourist and visitor season is over.
The sincere effort, time and money spent to encourage tourism, more visitor spending and local shopping is crippled by the “beautification program” that results in obscuring visibility of businesses that hope to benefit from these efforts.
Rather than continue the replacement policy with irregular varieties and sizes of trees, consider transplanting all the trees north of the Oak Harbor Chamber of Commerce office to a location by the school and/or residential areas.
