Mayor Bral, I urge you and the trustees not to overreact to the alleged
danger posed by trees in Great Neck. How many people have actually been
hurt through the years by a falling tree?
Our trees are one of our most precious resources, even more so since the storms of the last five years
have destroyed so many of them. If a tree is declared safe by an
arborist, it should be left alone, or trimmed as needed.
A healthy tree provides shade for houses in the neighborhood (not just the owner’s
house), and provides many benefits to the environment.
