Get on with the tree removal already

Re: Beloved Cadboro Bay tree lives to fight another day (News, Oct. 12)

After reading your article “Beloved Cadboro Bay tree lives to fight another day (News, Oct. 12)” I am surprised at John Oberg’s continued obstruction of the tree’s removal.

His own independent arborist even confirmed Saanich’s findings that the tree is dangerous and should be removed, yet he still insists on the tree staying put and was able to have Saanich agree to a third review of the tree’s health.

He and his fellow residents even have the audacity to file an injunction to stop the removal. I hope Mr. Oberg is willing to pay for this extra study, any court costs involved with the injunction and the extra time the police, arborists and eventual tree cutting company have wasted on this ordeal.

As a Saanich resident I don’t want one nickel of my tax dollars going towards prolonging this situation that will undoubtedly end in the tree’s removal.
