(To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser — 26 July 1940
(To the Editor.) Sir,-During a recent visit to Whit tlesea, I notice that a number of the trees in the avenue applroaching the township were hardly in keeping with the substantial guards protecting them. As they were planted at some cost, and cost a good deal of money keoping them watered during thd first year, I hope the Council will see that they are looked after and givenl Cvery attention. While on the subj.ect of trees, I think those on the road at Yan Yean need cutting back. Sugar gums are neither shade ihor ornamental .if' allowed to run up 30 or 40 feet. Yuirs etc., ' "TREE LOVER."
