Reader upset over ‘massacred’ tree

Recently, a moron driving a green tractor, S.C. highway department, I suppose, mutiliated a beautiful tree in a couple’s front yard while they were at work.

This was not a shrub or wild tree, but a beautiful magnolia planted by a young man more than 60 years ago. He was welding rail through a swamp in Florida for CSX railroad, pulled up this tiny tree, brought it home and planted it in his mother’s yard.

We watched it grow and admired it. It is taller than the two-story home that it stands in front of.

Any idiot should have known better than to massacre such a lovely tree. His boss should fire him and don’t let him make another track on Steven Campbell Road. He’s not welcome.
