Dear editor, I would like to comment on how nice, and very important it is to have mature trees in our neighbourhood. Recently one morning, there was a rare opportunity to have a few moments by myself (we have a one-and-a-half year-old toddler) and I sat in front of our house. The street was quiet as it was before everyone went to work or school. The moment was serene. The more I sat there, the more I realized all of the birds that were flitting about from tree to tree. There were junkos, chickadees and blue jays, to name a few. They were singing and zipping around happily thanks to the trees in which they sought rest and shelter. My husband and I will be able to teach our son that the trees clean the air and give off oxygen as well as provide places for birds and animals to live. (I am sure he'll climb a few too!). We are in a neighbourhood with a variety of mature and well-established trees. How very fortunate with the number of trees being removed due to urban development. Tauni Sheldon, Acton
