LETTERS TO THE EDITOR: Shrub thief is the `lowest of the low'
Independent & Free Press (Georgetown, ON), 7 Jun 2006, p. 6

Full Text

Dear editor, This letter is intended for the individuals who choose to shop for their trees and shrubs out of my front gardens, free of charge. I live in the country and take pride in my home and surroundings. The trees and shrubs I have planted at the end of my driveway cost money and hard work. What makes some individuals think it is fine for them to skulk around in the middle of the night and dig up my trees and shrubs in order to beautify their home? I am at a loss for words to describe my feelings for the low-life who would do this. If you can't afford to landscape your place, then like the rest of us, wait until you can. I'm sure you find it amusing and you must be very proud of yourselves that you could actually pull this off. What a wonderful lesson you are teaching your children. Now they will be able to go out and help themselves to other people's property and go undetected because "mommy and daddy taught me how." If you are so desperate to have trees and shrubs at your place, then maybe you should have knocked at my door and asked for a donation of plants, etc. I would have given you some rather than have my garden destroyed. I hope you can live with yourself and consider yourself a good parent, teaching your children responsible lessons. I consider you the lowest of low and unfortunately in the years to come if your children follow in your footsteps they will also be the lowest of low. Enjoy my trees and shrubs! Deanne Osborn, Acton
