According to this article over at ThisweekLive, Sandra Lintz doesn’t understand what a power line right of way is and what it means to her trees.
While in years gone by, Xcel would come in and trim the trees for Sandra, this year she was notified that they would be out and out removed. Aaron and I were chatting about this and he noticed that the ThisweekLive article has a typo that currently reads, “Excel takes out more trees due to East Coast power outages” and he said, “LOL so like, they came in and said ‘DELETE COLUMN’.” I got a good chuckle out of that at Mrs. Lintz’ and ThisweekLive’s expense.
Anyway, while I sympathize with Sandra over the unfortunate loss of her trees, it’s not like she owns that property or should have thought that she could grow whatever the hell she wanted there without the risk of it eventually coming down at the whim of Xcel Energy.
What do you think, should she be so upset over the loss of her trees that she should have had a fluff article written about her misunderstanding of what it means to plant under a right of way?
