GOVERNOR CAN HALT TREE CUTTING ALONG INTERSTATES

Posted February 21, 2018 10:41 pm
By Savannah Morning News


Angry, distressed residents of the Coastal Empire have been writing letters to the editor for months now, protesting the insane raping of the interstate medians of hundreds of acres of forest. And to absolutely no avail. There is no local control over this deforestation, either politically or by the Georgia Department of Transportation. The shots are being called by Atlanta headquarters of GA- DOT, unelected bureaucrats who don’t care about the devastation they are creating on I-16, I-516 and or I-95.
Their response is that this pillaging is to “safeguard motorists and provide assistance and adequate room to recover if someone leaves the roadway.” Now that is admirable, but why not guardrails or cables instead? Just look at the colossal mess, the erosion, the devastation, the ecological harm they leave in their wake. But you know what? It isn’t visible from Atlanta. The absolute only recourse we have is to appeal to Governor Deal, someone who has been a champion for our region, especially our ports. If you are as upset about this incredible debacle as I am, please take a minute and email the governor at www.georgia.gov and appeal to him for assistance in this horrible plan run amuck.

Deal is the only one who can halt this wreckage. The number of trees are dwindling as I write.
