Letter to the editor: Tree-cutting did Ferrisburgh a favor

As I continue to read about the ongoing tree issue on Arnold Bay Road in Ferrisburgh I wonder why the tree warden, Mr. Mix, fails to see all the rotted and broken hanging trees on the other side of the road that are a danger to cars and walkers? If this is the town’s “right of way” why hasn’t the town done something about them?
A good storm will and can take these down. This is a very highly traveled road to Basin Harbor, for people from New York as well as walkers.
It still looks to me the Vorstevelds did the town a favor by doing someone else’s job.
The plan to replant trees should be looked into very carefully so as not to have the same mess as before.
If someone would take a few minutes to walk or drive this road they would see for themselves what trees need to come down.
I walk this road often and stay close to the Vorsteveld’s side to avoid the danger, especially on a very windy day.
