Leave the trees for us to enjoy

Letter writer concerned about tree removal in Harrison Hot Springs

Dear Editor,

Have you seen what has been done to our beautiful pristine Harrison? Bad enough we had that building built across from Balsam Avenue but to see a gaping hole where our tall lovely trees stood its like a massacre on nature. No wonder Kingma Bros. sold that parcel of land and left Harrison. The person or persons allowing the cutting of those trees to build more homes are insane. Come around the bend on Hot Springs Road before Balsam Avenue and it is a sickening site. Seems our head honchos in Harrison are forgetting some of us live here all year round. Stop thinking of the money and leave some trees standing for us to enjoy as well as tourists.
