text: I noticed on the way that the sides of the bridle path are being cut back so hard as to expose the roots of the oak trees planted above them. This is a mistake as it will bring the trees down, and the bridle path is more than wide enough already. I suggest that the S.D.O. should give orders against cutting away or even scraping the banks where it is not absolutely necessary. The compound of the Litami I.B. is much too small, and should be enlarged to the old dimensions, or more. It might be worthwhile putting in a few more orange trees there too.
