  1. Saving trees that’s a laugh or a joke. We had beautiful trees in the Park on Foster Street which now is a dirty disgusting parking for cars, the trees were cut down they were healthy but some people didn’t think they were but they were. The trees where there for over 40 years and I saw them grow, saving trees NO that’s not what happen. Let’s face it nothing is like it use to be. Shame! and very sad. Trees purify the air, it helps with our dirty environment.
