Freedom is a burning tree

The story last week about a lawsuit to prevent a property owner from chopping down three historic trees really touched a nerve with some readers. Among the more colorful comments on the story’s online version was this one from “hs191962”:

I for one am sick of people telling me what I should or can and cannot do with my land. I am going to go cut down a 150 year old tree tommorow because I own the dam thing so kiss my behind tree huggers. If you want to find me follow the smoke from burnig limbs by the Southworth ferry.

The post ends with one word. All caps.


So, if you south-end islanders happen see a toppled old tree in flames down around Southworth, you’ll know what freedom really looks like.
