Tree trimmers butcher Cove man’s canopy



When Leland Dunlap and his family began building on their lot over 40 years ago they had a plethora of trees, so many that a dozer was required to clear the property on Kate Street. Saving two dozen trees in the back of the property as a shade canopy, he has landscaped and designed the backyard for comfort Midway through their pruning process, Wright Tree sServices and Nelson Co. paid a visit to his home to clear the branches around the multi-purpose pole that sits on an adjacent property. “They said they were supposed to cut back seven foot from the line.
