All the trees are gone from Mountain Brow Road

Opinion Mar 30, 2016 Flamborough Review

Re: Development taking over Waterdown’s beauty

I drive on Mountain Brow Road at least three times a week going to and from Burlington.

Not long ago, there were trees on both sides of the road. Not anymore – you couldn’t find a tree on the one side if you had a magnifying glass.

Talk about stupidity.

If that wasn’t bad enough, why grind hundreds of trees up instead of using them for lumber?

They are always talking about our environment; how much oxygen would those trees have provided, and how much carbon dioxide would they have removed? Where do the birds go?

I’ve lived here since 1961 so I’ve seen quite a change!
