I've been watching streets turn from tree-lined to wire-lined, and it's distressing. Is this what we want to leave to our children? Our duty to future generations is to make the world greener, not less green. Please prioritize saving our canopy trees (not ornamental ones).

Let's be reasonable about the trees we take, and try to replace them with canopy trees. We're going to need them!

We need tall shade trees lining our streets. They help to shade you outside on a ridiculously hot day and keep the cooling bills lower. More importantly from a planet perspective, they clean the air and pride animal housing.

Respectfully,
Esther

I lived in Madison for six years, back in the 80's when the city had lost most of its elm trees. Last time I visited, I was fascinated by the grown canopies of trees. It was a different and better city.

Please stop using smaller replacement trees. It seems a lazy choice on behalf of city forestry. Smaller trees, less work, no canopy.

Trees are our intimate partners in this world. We breathe together, we share the air, the water, the energy of our community. Let us honor and preserve them.

Ugliness is cutting down all the trees that soften the Madison landscape.
