SAVE THE TREES
Citizens Protest Against Cutting Down
Of Pines And Junipers, Which AdJ
To The Beauty Of The City
To The Edltpr:
Inasmuch as there appears to be n sentiment on the part of Dome
residents of Bend and even certain members of the City Council that, as
many trees as possible should be cut down, we wish to state our views on
the subject, Wo are sure what we sny here represents the sentiment of
most pcoplo concerned with the best Interests of thu town who have
Klven the matter thought.
Kven if pine and juniper trees hapiten to be In the street, by all,
means leave them. If at any timu.it really becomes absolutely necessary,
with the growth of the city, to destroy them, It is always easy to do so.
And it is absolutely Imjioiwdble to replace them when once cut down.
Nothing adds more to Mend's beauty than the presence of the trees.
It Ih thu thing that strikes visitor most. Benl's trees will make her
famous. In other places, vm fortunate, fortunes are spent in nn effort
to grow trees. In I'asailena, for instance, the trees are kept everywhere;
when they happen to grow in the streets, they are protected with walls
ir fences, even when the street grade Is lowered around them. And
1'iuuidena Is noted for the attractiveness of its street.
Kven if it costs the city a littlu more to preserve the trees, as when
it may be necessary to construct sidewalks or ditches around them, the
extra cxense is well repaid.
