LETTERS: Some trees left to die

I can’t believe my eyes as I drive past the corner of King George and 16 Avenue looking at another group of dying cedars planted by City of Surrey, replacing healthy locust trees that were there for years.

They are so red, it looks like they were never watered.

After the first group of cedars died, why didn’t they take more care with the second group?

Who is responsible for letting these young trees die?

Just around the corner, the plants in the new medians are being watered. So, why were these trees neglected?

Is this the best way to showcase the ‘city of trees’?
