Public Grass Mowers

Posted on Mon, Apr 18, 2011 at 12:33 PM

I have watched you for a few years kill small and young trees with your careless use of the motorized string trimmers. These fucking tools severely damage the barks of young trees and eventually lead to their death. If the purpose of trimming is to beautify the city, you are doing a terrible job. I do not just blame you but also blame the city and the companies that hire you for not knowing how to protect the trees and for not telling you not to use the trimmers around the barks of trees. The city spends a lot of time and tax money on planting these trees just to have them damaged and killed by senseless and careless use of trimmers. Stay the fuck away from the barks when you use trimmers and the next time you are walking around the city, take some time to look at some of the young trees and see for yourself the damage caused every year by using trimmers around them. I hope you and the city do things differently this year. —Scratching Head
