Owner has right to his trees
I have read the article by Robert Barron concerning the desire of Kevin Maher of the Duncan Flying Club to cut down the conifers at the edge of the airport. These conifers belong to someone else. They are not his to cut.
He says that the owner of the trees is refusing to trim or cut them down so that the airport can remain open and lit up 24 hours a day. Very many conifers, such as some cedars, will die if their tops are cut off. Regardless, I have to side with the owner of the trees.
What I can suggest is that the airport realign their landing strip so that the few nightime arrivals approach the airport from a different direction. Emergency helicopters land in the middle of the field anyway.
