It`s appears that the State is once again out to destroy the beauty and ambiance of Route 9. Many years ago when when Clare Sauer was our State Rep she put a stop to this kind of unwarranted and unnessary destruction. There were no tress down on the highway after either of the 3 major storms last year on this end of Route 9. The State is destroying healthy live trees which have been a barrier to blinding headlights and stopping cars from crossing the median into on coming traffic while having an accident. The positives out weigh the negatives for maintaining these trees right where they are. It`s a shame that our current State Rep Phil Miller hasn`t come out against this.
