Vonnie Kolbenschlag: Lauds CJE, Fiscal Court for tree decision
Applauds their decision to follow advice of retired forester Billy Joe Fudge and hopes that more appropriate trees will soon replace weakened maples and that they will be properly pruned and maintained

By Vonnie Kolbenschlag
I LOVE trees! Not only for appearance, but also for the benefit provided supplying oxygen and beauty. It makes me sad to see trees mutilated by someone whose qualification is having a chain saw.
Our historic courthouse is blocked by trees that have grown large and possibly damaged foundation and exterior to the outside of the building. It's not the trees fault, that's just what big trees planted so close to a building do.
I understand that smaller trees will replace the ones cut down, and for me, that will allow the architectural features of the historic courthouse no longer to be obscured. I think smaller trees will enhance the appearance and provide beauty to the Public Square and I hope they will be properly pruned.
I commend our county judge and magistrates for contacting someone qualified who knows and cares about trees before they made a decision. --Vonnie Kolbenschlag
