Long may they stand

Long may they stand

Unlike your March 14 letter writers ("Residents blue over 'Blue Parkway,'" "Parkway trees don't need gilding," "Artist's 'art' is public's 'eyesore'"), I was glad to learn the trees on the Parkways wrapped in blue were an art project. When I first saw the blue wrappers, I was afraid planners at the Memphis Zoo had tagged a hundred or so of Midtown's finest trees for destruction.

Let's make all trees in and around Overton Park an art project if it will protect them from zoo growth.
