LETTER: Chainsaw spelled tree’s end

LETTER: Chainsaw spelled tree’s end

(File photo)

Remember me (the big tree in Centennial RV Park)?

Or did you forget I ever existed?

I lived in Oliver long before most of you were born, but strangely enough it was the visitors to Oliver that I saw the most of.

Oh sure, a few people from the town might call by to have a visit with friends, but mostly it was people from Alberta who I shaded from the sun and enjoyed.

I am gone now thanks to a chap with a big chainsaw, as are all the other trees.

That’s progress, I guess, and now I hear you have a battle waging between your two provinces. Oh my… will you ever learn to get on?

Don Smithyman, Oliver
