“No one else was doing the research,” Rivers said, “so I decided I wanted to.”

To the continued vandalism of trees in Oneonta.
Over the past two years, the city has planted about 300 trees, of which about 10 percent have been destroyed or damaged, according to Mayor Dick Miller. The cost to replace the trees would exceed $20,000.
Trees contribute to the beauty of the city and well-being of Oneonta’s citizens and visitors, and the vandalism costs the taxpayers money.
Those who damage trees should be ashamed of themselves.
