Lee: Ask residents whether they want palms

Posted 8/11/20

In response to the “removal of palm trees” opinion (“Agree that palm tress should go,” Sun City West Independent, Aug. 5, 2020), my husband and I have lived in Sun City West for many years and we have so enjoyed the beauty of the tall palm trees gracing our streets and golf courses.

Lee: Ask residents whether they want palms

Posted

In response to the “removal of palm trees” opinion (“Agree that palm tress should go,” Sun City West Independent, Aug. 5, 2020), my husband and I have lived in Sun City West for many years and we have so enjoyed the beauty of the tall palm trees gracing our streets and golf courses.

They need such little care and they add a wonderful, tropical feeling to our community. When my mother was ill and I made the trip to Boswell Hospital, driving down Del Webb Boulevard in Sun City many times, it always lifted my spirits and made me smile to see the beauty of the trees blowing in the wind, reaching up to the sky.

These trees give our Sun cities a special significance. We know we’re in a beautiful retirement community. It’s a special place like no other. Let’s continue to enjoy the wonder of these trees.

Before any decisions are made, please ask the retirees living here in Sun City West what they desire. Thank you.
