SAVE OUR TREES, PLEASE.
One does not need to have a diet rich in granola in order to appreciate the canopy of Live Oaks along Johnny Mercer Blvd, nor does one need to have placed flowers in the barrel of a gun in order to see that they must be protected and properly maintained. (I am afraid that the uneducated pruning of them leaves disjointed skeletons where mighty soldiers once stood proud and tall.)
The Wilmington Island Hester and Zipperer is delighted to host a SAVE OUR TREES petition that will be given to Chatham County Commission Chairman, Pete Liakakis, and 4th District County Commissioner, Pat Farrell. It is designed to prevent further trees from being taken down along Johnny Mercer Blvd. It seems that more lots are in danger of losing their trees.
Please come by the store and support the trees whose shade has fallen upon our great-grandparents, so that it may, one day, fall upon our great-grandchildren as well.
