LETTERS: Sybil’s tree campaign in Surrey is admirable

Keep up the good work, Sybil. It’s pretty hard to beat city hall.

I was pleased to read the article about Sybil Rowe’s campaign to save some of our wonderful evergreen trees.

I also found it amusing to read City of Surrey staffer Ted Uhrich’s remark that cedars like wet feet. Too bad someone didn’t speak to him about the butcher of the cedars on 32nd Avenue near 168th Street. They took down tall old cedars and put in a holding pond for water.

Go figure!

Keep up the good work, Sybil. It’s pretty hard to beat city hall.
