Good job on tree removal

Dear editor,

We on Cherokee Lane would like to express our appreciation to the Shelbyville Power System for the excellent job they did removing a very large oak tree from the Dunlap property. The tree was estimated to be between 100 and 200 years old.

Recently on two windy occasions large limbs had fallend resulting in loss of electricity to the Hayes and Johnson homes, as well as damage to several electrical appliances.

Thanks also to the Bedford County Fire Department for their assistance. The Shelbyville Power System agreed to remove the tree. Shelbyville is very fortunate to have such a highly skilled, congenial, and helpful group of employees.

We and a neighbor spent practically the entire day watching their skillful work. After the tree was down, they cleaned up immaculately, even sweeping the street.

We don't know their names, but they are definitely to be commended.

Mary Ann and Ed Dunlap
