Re: “In Durham, Rich Neighborhoods Have Plenty of Trees. Poor Neighborhoods, Not So Much

The children and tennants of Franklin Village are destroying their own trees. I witnessed a group of children literally rip down a small tree that had recently been planted and another tree that had been hit was stuck under a car parked in Franklin Village. A total of 5 trees out there have been lost since planting just 2 years ago or less. My Latino neighbors who rent, cook outdoors very often and routinely cut down branches and entire trees to fuel their fires. After 2 years, they are now driving elsewhere to cut their wood. Who knows where, but im sure its in Durham!I agree that there should be more planting in these areas mentioned, but Im betting some portion of the population in those areas could care less. The people that appear to care have gardens and potted plants in these neighborhoods, but wont plant a tree on their own?
