Score one for three majestic oak trees in Harrison County. The trees, each more than a hundred years old, will continue to provide shade and beauty thanks to the power of the people.
The trees had been slated to be cut down to make way for sewer work on Cowan/Lorraine Road in the Woolmarket area. However the Reverend Joe Reynolds of Coalville United Methodist Church last summer went door to door collecting signatures to save the trees.
He also recruited two other Woolmarket churches to join in the fight. We even editorialized supporting their efforts.
This week a victory. The Harrison County Utility Authority said it would spare the trees by boring underneath them instead of cutting them down. This is a great example of how you can change a government agency's mind, if you organize and are willing to spend the time necessary to make your point.
Reverend Reynolds said, "If those trees could talk they would say, "thank you!" Well we can talk, and we say, "thank you" to all of you who joined together to save the trees. And, we tip our hat to the Waste Water Authority for recognizing the importance of trees in our community.
