Glendale is known as a tree city and has been for many years. I live in the Rossmoyne area and am happy that the city has taken the money and effort to plant trees where they are missing or could enhance the streetscape.
Trees add to the quality of life and quality of the very air that we breathe.
I was amazed at the lack of knowledge of Gary Huerta, who wrote of his learning experience of what he owns and what the city owns (“Take your trees back, Glendale,” Feb. 9). It is never too late learn and hopefully is never too late to realize that the planting of trees in any part of the city is an asset to the community. It seems that the city always has those who complain about everything. Those are strong words — inconsiderate and arbitrary, and negligent. Santa Barbara, Santa Monica and Carmel are in for real trouble with all those trees and ambience.
