Letter: Palm Tree Defense

Letter to the Editor

Letter in response to “SCE to cut down 11,000 palm trees over next two years,” published April 1:

Peace be with you (As-salaam ‘Alaikum),

Palm trees do not start fires,

I have seen telephone wires spark 

Where there are no palm trees.

Your lack in monitoring your equipment

Is not reason to remove palm trees

Move/remove your wires.

Leave the trees. Write your councilperson.

In the name of Allah,

As-Salaamu ‘Alaikum

Haquimah Allah
