We need to protect our forests that protect us from climate change, floods, soil erosion, cleaning the air, etc. Trees are much more valuable left standing than creating a clear-cut wasteland.

There have already been so many distinct heritage trees taken down in the DoS. (N)evergreen Mall is one prime example. Does Sooke want to be remembered and recognized only as the community that was born on the back of the forests it denuded, or does it want to set a bylaw to recognize an appreciation for that history and for the value of significant trees within the District? As we evolve we understand so much more about trees and their contributions to our natural world - they are not just a commodity. Bylaws to preserve trees deemed important culturally, aesthetically or otherwise are important and work to represent the wishes of constituents in other local jurisdictions. Yes, please, Sooke.

Thanks for adding your voice.
