I hope the Goshen City Council will not do something so foolish as to eliminate the city forester position. If they do, it will not only harm our city now, but will continue to do so for future generations. City Forester Aaron Sawatsky-Kingsly has done a wonderful job educating the public through his column in The Goshen News about the value to all of us that our trees provide.
He has also done a very fine job in educating our school children of the importance of trees. The City Council needs to find its money elsewhere, but not by eliminating the job of city forester.
