Establishment’s ax

There are 58 mature oaks, most of them 20 years or older, lining Fancher Heights Boulevard in East Wenatchee scheduled to be cut down as an expedient solution to some needed sidewalk repairs. This decision was mandated by the Douglas County Transportation and Land Services and agreed to by the Fancher Heights Homeowners Association Board of Directors — without a vote by the 140 or so actual homeowners in the subdivision. This decision was not publicized early on, although in many places cutting down one such established tree might cause an outrage. Some of us would like to find another alternative, but the decision-makers are adamant that tree removal is the necessary solution. If you care about green spaces and preserving trees as part of our neighborhoods and living environment, we hope you will make your voices heard — especially in the Douglas County establishment.
