Let’s keep the beauty of our city.

first_imgDear Editor:On Aug. 7, I was walking in my neighborhood when I turned onto Eighth Street off of Mansfield Avenue. I was horrified to see Tico’s Tree Service leaving the block and that 22 mature trees had been cut down. It was the only block in the area with any shade on a hot day.I called city hall and was told that the residents had chosen to have their trees removed as part of a repaving and that new trees would be planted. How is it that Rutherford and Ridgefield Park have many beautiful mature trees and still maintain their streets and sidewalks?The next day I discovered that over twenty trees had been removed on the next block. I came upon one home owner who was furious with two representatives of the engineering department who were telling her that the tree in front of her house had to go. She said,” Why did you pretend that I had a choice? My sidewalk is fine. I want my tree.” Later that day her tree was gone.The scarcity of mature trees in Secaucus gives the town a sterile look and makes our homes and town hotter in the summer thus requiring extra energy use for air conditioning and sadly, little shade. I appreciate the green policies of Secaucus but this is not one of them. Kay Millerlast_img read more
