What do YOU think?

Do you feel as if the tree-trimmers went too far in Eureka Springs?

Andrew Schwerin

"Friendly Farmer"

Yes. Power lines take days to fix. Trees take decades to regrow.

Ariel Clark

"Bright Star"

Yes, I think they went too far.

David Herriman

"Martha Stewart"

No, I don't think so, but I do love trees...and that's a good thing!

Tim Adams

"Mr. Tim"

Yes, some of the trees look butchered, they may as well have cut them down completely.

Rio Culhane


Yes, what also bothered me was that they left branches in the roadways.

Dena Sunday-White

"Busy Lady"

No, I don't think so. Remember the ice storms? I do think they should have hired locally.
