Sad that tree was taken down

To the editor:

Why on earth would our town ruthlessly take down a perfectly healthy aged beautiful

Linden tree? No one is protecting these wonderful natural beauties.

The response is that this tree was obstructing traffic in a busy intersection. Nonsense. This tree was tall enough so that drivers could see around it. Plus there are plain to see traffic lights at the four way stops. Not a good reason. It seems that they want to put their workers out there, what about fixing all of the potholes.

So sorrowful that we will no longer be able to see the lovely array of yellow and orange leaves that showed in the fall, nor have the abundant shade flowing from its lovely leaves in summer.

Thank you Kennebunk butchers for removing all of our wonderful renowned landscape.
