Letter to the editor: Sidewalk comes at the cost of trees

You can notice a row of ugly stumps on your left as you leave Middlebury via the Pulp Mill Bridge.
These were a row of 60 foot trees. In 1997 there was a sidewalk planned to link Seymour Street with Weybridge Street. At that time the plan called to leave the trees standing. That plan went broke.
The plan is revived, and the trees were destroyed about a year ago. More trees are scheduled to go down this spring.
Many people who might enjoy the sidewalk see themselves as green. Does that only apply to their backyards?
