X Marks The Spot

On Saturday October 20th a friend and I headed over to the beautiful area full of trees beside the new Health and Wellness center to do some photography, to our surprise we noticed on every tree an eerie white X. My immediate reaction was sadness, thinking about how beautiful this spot is, how secluded yet open it is and how already there aren’t too many nice and peaceful spots like this in the small town of Port Colborne.

All the X’s on the trees are facing away from traffic which means a person would only be able to see the X’s by actually walking through the forest. After researching the plans for the Health and Wellness center I realized that it is highly possible that these beautiful trees are being chopped for Bocce courts.

Sincerely, Concerned citizen
