Branch managing not city’s job

Dear Editor,

Re: City harmonizes tree-cutting bylaw, Review, October 24

Once again, municipal governments and other busybodies are infringing on property owners’ rights.

Trees, whether decorative or cash crop woodlots, belong to the property owner and it is at his discretion how they should be managed. The proposed bylaw is just another thinly-disguised tax grab.

The City of Hamilton should be working on cutting down the hundreds, likely thousands, of dead trees that line our roads. Dead branches rain down in wind storms, disrupting power and communications lines and pose a real danger to all who use the roads.

There have already been too many infringements on property owners and this proposal, like the others, should be ignored by everyone concerned.

MYOB !!!
