"News & Issues" piece on an 80 foot white pine in one of the oldest sections of Bangor's 260-acre Mount Hope Cemetery. Bangor city forester Rolland Perry, determining that the tree was a safety hazard, recently marked it for removal. But when Bangor resident Peggy Hanson found bright orange paint on the old pine that she calls her favorite reading and meditation tree, she filed protests with the city's public works department and the city council. Lisa LeBel of Glenburn joined the protest, and they recruited the Bangor Garden Club and the Forest Ecology Network for support. The protest also attracted the attention of two local newspapers. Last week, City Engineer Jim Ring decided to remove dangerous dead limbs and spare the tree.
