These branches are a hazard

Why do some people who saw down trees for firewood along an accessible trail leave their antler branches and mess behind?

Dear Sir:

Why  do some people who saw down trees for firewood along an accessible trail leave their antler branches and mess behind?

Others can too easily trip over this kind of hazard.

Plenty of people exercise along our nearby trails – seniors out for a walk, dogwalkers, kids on dirt bikes and ATVs, and soon, cross country skiers.

It takes only one irresponsible faller to leave a litter of branches right in the middle of the trail for the rest of us to pick our way through or around all winter unless we take the time to clear his teenage mess.

Soon the branches will freeze to the ground making it impossible for skiers to even hoist the branches aside.

These culprits aren’t  anonymous.

We’ve all seen them loading their firewood amidst a sea of chain saw chips.
