LETTER: Tree cutting too much for resident

The Edmond Sun

EDMOND — To the Editor:

Without warning, I woke up (recently) to all of my mature trees being cut down in my backyard that is in an easement. Sixteen trees were removed. How can the City of Edmond care for this area for 30-plus years and consider occasional trimming away from the power lines sufficient, but OGE (whose lines are above City of Edmond’s and further away from the trees) think that it’s OK to have Asplundh come in while everyone is at work and remove them? It looks like a 10-year-olds went through with a chainsaw and played in our backyards.
