Keep the trees
I am completely against cutting down trees if they are healthy (Letters to the editor, The Journal, June 10, 2021). Trees are an important part of the ecosystem (even when dead) and we are 100 per cent reliant on them. I do agree however that they need to be pruned and maintained.
There are many places in Quebec and the rest of Canada that Mr. Meades can move to without fear of a tree falling on his power line. Indeed there are many places in the world that are treeless. I believe some are uninhabitable, but maybe they have no worries re power outages.
I sincerely hope that it remains difficult to needlessly cut down trees in Saint-Lazare or anywhere for that matter.
