Trees Have To Go

I live in "The City of Trees". I live in the part of town where there are more trees, the north end. It's much cooler in the summer with the shade trees. Red Maple trees are going to be cut down from a area along a business street in downtown Boise. They have grown up into the electrical lines on this street and have become a danger for they could cause outages in the area. After the trees are taken out the beginning of next year a type of Crabapple will replace them. This type of tree will not grow as high and won't become a possible hazard. I'm so glad the Power Company is going to replace the trees.

Good that those trees will be replaced. I just searched for a picture of the crabapple tree online because I don't think we have it here. I think they look nice!

At least they will replace the trees with others.

That's a good thing. You don't need power outages in winter.
