Dominical residents to meet over plan to cut down trees

Dominical residents who oppose a plan to cut some of the trees in the community have been invited to a meeting today at 1 p.m. in the local school.

That was announced by resident Richard Hennessy. He said that the municipality plans to cut as many as 100 trees in the beach community in order to construct a concrete boardwalk. He said that so many trees were involved that municipal workers who were to mark the ones to be cut ran out of paint. He said:

“Is it not clear to all of us that cutting down so many precious, shade providing trees threatens to do far more damage to our town and to our tourism based economy than good?”

He said that Jacó, Puntarenas and Quepos are communities where trees have been cut.
