NASTY LETTER WRITER
Upon request, a letter of concern will be written by
PlantAmnesty volunteer Tina Cohen. Each year
numerous letters are written, mostly to companies advertising
the unsound practice of topping as a tree service. Letters
are firm but polite, educational, and are accompanied by back-up
literature. Other letters are written to publishers who
disseminate incorrect information, policy makers of municipalities,
and businesses who have mal-pruned or otherwise seriously
mis-treated their plants. Originators of the requested
letters are not mentioned by name.
To have a letter of concern written for you, we must have the
following information: Name, address, and ZIP code of company
or person, and description and approximate date of event.
Include the species name if possible, and whether or not powerlines
were present. A photo is especially useful, as we must have
copies of any advertisements which advertise tree topping.
Please mail the information, along with photos or copies of ads to:
