Cutting 10,000 trees


Saying they were borrowing from traditional Indian beliefs, about 50 ecology activists gathered at Loch Raven Reservoir Sunday to honor the spirits of 10,000 trees that are being cleared by Baltimore Gas and Electric Co. for a transmission line. One in the group said the tree-cutting was as "tragic" as the killing of people "in a deep ecology sense."

The Evening Sun would like to know what you think. Should the trees be cut down for the line, which BG&E; says is needed to handle suburban growth from the past 20 years? Are the ecologists' concerns warranted?

To register your opinion, call SUNDIAL at 783-1800 (or 268-7736 in Anne Arundel County) today through midnight. After you hear the greeting, you'll be asked to punch in a four-digit code on your touch-tone phone. Punch 4600 and you'll be connected with "It's Your Call," The Evening Sun's phone survey on topical issues.

"It's Your Call" represents a sampling of opinions from certain segments of the community, but it is not balanced demographically, as would be done in a scientific public opinion poll.

Look for the results in tomorrow's Evening Sun.End of story question
