Cut them all down, we live in the desert, Water is our most dire natural resource that we must learn to conserve and not waste.

Better to plant native trees that can grow great using the effulent water.

Why, so he can quit next time Diane Denish runs for another failed attempt for governor?

Alamogordo had its official beginning in June, 1898, when the El Paso and Northwestern Railroad, owned by Charles B. Eddy, reached the town. Mr. Eddy was very influential in the founding of Alamogordo. He planned a community with large wide thoroughfares and irrigation ditches lined with trees. The name of this community was derived from those trees. They were large cottonwoods and "Alamo Gordo" in Spanish translates to "fat cottonwood."

And you know that since there was a railroad here, they needed wood for many uses, and cottonwood trees grow fast, provide lots of soft wood, and are easy to grow...
