Why are they removing them??

Are they dead?
Are they in the way of business signs?

Surely they knew trees have roots, roots spread and grow! Breaking sidewalks!

Trees draw birds! Birds poop everywhere!

Trees have branches that sway causing signs to be ruined!!
Surely!!

For crying out loud! Poll the durn business owners and find out if they want the stupid trees in front of their businesses.
It is a No Brainer

We're all striving to make our livings in Ulysses, and THIS is what we have to complain about? No mention of why Hugoton is putting in a dairy processing plant and we aren't. Give me a break people!
And What

And what do these trees have to do with a Dairy in Hugoton! These people are stating a fact here!
The trees are a problem!
How would you like bird poop all over your step, tracked in your home or business, ruining your sign or property or maybe not even to be able to see the
Business sign for the trees!
Not to mention the hazard that can be from the concrete being damaged, raising it up to cause
someone to slip and fall or tripping on raised
concrete.

Therefore, yes this is an issue that needs to be addressed. Has nothing to do with making a living in Ulysses!

People must be really bored in this town if they have to make such a big deal about cutting down one tree. The people who asked went through it the correct way and it was voted on by the city council.

The trees were old and growing into the buildings (not even mentioning what the roots are doing underground) and after cutting this one tree down, it has now made the council focus on redesigning main street which is a good thing. I think people need to quit complaining about something that wasn't that big of deal. It makes our town look like a joke.
