Subject: Increase in the irresponsible cutting of trees
Dear Sir,

     I want to bring to your kind attention the irresponsible cutting down of trees in our Adyar area. Please publish this in your esteemed newspaper so that the information reaches all the corners of society.

     There has been an indiscriminate cutting down of trees for the past month in Sunshine Avenue, Adyar. In the past month, more than 12 trees have been cut down owing to the rise of the new apartment complex. The benefits of trees are needless to say - from providing us oxygen to live to the scenic beauty it offers to the whole area. Not to forget the shady roads, cool breezy evenings, prevention of soil erosion, and home to hundreds of birds and animals. Just for building new apartments, these trees are being cruelly cut down. Will the concerned officers take a look at this issue and do the needful to stop this activity immediately?

I am hoping for a good solution to this problem.
Thank you
Best Regards,
A resident of Sunshine Avenue, Adyar.
