Tree ‘trimming’ hurting property ownersPublished 8:51am Wednesday, September 11, 2013
I am writing this letter to alert my fellow Ironton residents that the power company has began trimming trees in the Ironton area.
I am alerting you to the fact that trees on my property were hacked around on and not professionally trimmed. I was not alerted to this work formally and no member of the power company or the tree service alerted me to this work.
The tree service company brings their trucks in and blocks your driveway, without notice and they simply hack around on your tree with no regard to the way the end product looks.
In an era where there is great care being done to provide Ironton a better look through organizations like Ironton In Bloom, I find it appalling that our city would allow such unprofessional work to be done.
I am sorry that the “work” that was done on my property was done unprofessionally, but I had no say in the matter.
I am hopeful, that by writing this letter, that our city leaders and residents can prevent this from happening to other unsuspecting residents.
