Keep the trees? Why is this even a question? Yes you should keep the trees! Is there a bug infestation going on? Anybody else notice all the recently removed trees and the stumps left in their place? Are they not going to replace them? Not a good look, that's for sure. Or is this a move to avoid downed wires during storms? 10am "public hearing"? That's convenient.
