Unnecessary bylaw

News columnist Mark Rushton has rightly said that the tree protection bylaw is unnecessary, and just harasses the public.

It should be abrogated.

Trees standing in front of the houses should be considered the property of the dwellers, and they should be free to trim, cut or uproot them.

We are all conscious of the importance of forestation, and people seldom do something to harm it.

I support  Mark in this respect.
