Dear Editor,

A few years ago, I started noticing the lack of trees on the center medians of Woodhaven Boulevard. I called Councilwoman Crowley's office to see if the Parks Department could replace missing trees and never heard anything.

In March, I contacted Councilman Robert Holden's office and they are investigating my request.

During a recent walk from Dry Harbor Road to Metropolitan Avenue, I counted 24 trees, 29 empty tree pits, and a few dead trees.

Trees give off oxygen and absorb air and noise pollution. With all the traffic on Woodhaven Boulevard, we could use them.
