As Irene demonstrated, trees have their disadvantages
Childs Walker's recent article about the power outages ("Down come the trees, and off goes the power," Aug. 29), may be more appropriately titled, "Here come the environmentalists, up go the trees." Where I live in Baltimore County, when you build you have the tree environmentalists dictating what trees can be removed. The same bureaucrat then dictates what trees you must replace. The county always forces you to add trees.
