    Eversource the enemy of trees

    Congratulations EVERSOURCE!!!

    Not many companies can lay claim to the amazing accomplishments you and your group of deforesters cast upon the property between Greentree Drive and Grabner in Waterford over just a few days.

    Lowered property values, increased water runoff, light and noise pollution and destroyed the habitat of thousands of wildlife.

    You did all this without any input or even warning those of us who would be impacted by your actions. Why? Do not say you were trying to protect your wires from falling trees. How does a tree 20 feet high, 60 feet away from a tower threaten wires 60-80 feet high? The previous version of Eversource once had to cut some mature trees down to access a tower. They then replaced those same trees with new ones. That is how you act as a responsible corporate neighbor. The head of your forestry management should be fired, and you should replant trees to restore what you have destroyed.

    B. Geoffrey Burnham
