Poplar trees are a hazard and need to go | Letter to the editor

I am all for removing the poplars. They are a safety hazard to the community. 

The shore pines suggested by Forest Shomer, however, are not the answer. He suggests the shore pine as a “healthier alternative” to the poplars. We have them across the street from us and they produce a terrible yellow cloud of pollen that sticks to windows, covers cars and the road and causes terrible allergy symptoms. 

Please choose a tree that is beautiful and doesn’t produce allergens. Deciduous trees are beautiful and I would suggest the Gingko tree. Just make sure you plant males and not females. The females have very stinky fruit.
