To The Daily Sun,
My opinion may not count for much, since I am a resident of Gilford, but I should like to express my dismay at Laconia's cavalier treatment of its majestic oaks.
First it was the Perley Oak — 400 years old. No matter, its days are numbered. Cut it down! Fortunately that decision was rescinded.
Now that wonderful oak on Union Avenue. Its days, too, are numbered, as are yours and mine. It blocks the view, no matter that it is itself part of "The View" on an increasingly commercial and undistinguished Union Avenue. Cafua Management cares not for Laconia and does what it wishes, promises and conditions notwithstanding.
Is it not time for the City of Laconia to assert itself, require that Cafua Management move that exit, remove the impervious pavement around the tree, and let us enjoy that remnant of an earlier time as long as the tree itself shall live?
