Heidi, nice piece of investigative journalism. NOT! Your style of writing is more appropriate for a romance novel than a journalist. You did not present both sides of the story, instead you chose to portray PG&E as the big bad corporate wolf and painted an exaggerated idyllic picture of a tree and its owner. I can almost hear violins playing in the background. If you had done your research you would have been able to explain why PG&E cuts trees and cited laws that dictate the distances trees must be away from the high voltage lines. Hint, it can easily be found by a simple google search. If you had done your research you may have even found out that inside the city limits the law says trees only need to be 18 inches away from the power lines. Is the tree inside of McKinleyville city limits, Heidi? If you were attempting to embarrass PG&E your argument would be more credible if you had done your homework and provided facts rather than relying on your creative writing skills. This article is an example of lazy reporting. Congrats.
