WITH reference to the alterations to Strand Gardens, I am strongly against the felling of those beautiful trees.

In today's "green living" and "carbon footprint" worries, surely tree felling is the last thing that should be done. They stand there majestically, working to gobble up all the carbon monoxide in Exmouth centre and give us life-giving oxygen in return. They should be lovingly cared for, not destroyed.

When I came to Exmouth to live over 40 years ago, one of the things that attracted me most were the beautiful, natural Strand Gardens - since then the disastrous attempts at improvement have left us with a "concrete jungle" and regular flooding.

Why cannot we be different from all the other town centres and enjoy a more eco-friendly environment, where birds fly and people can relax?
