Subject: Increase in irresponsible cutting of trees
Dear Sir,

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

     There has been an indiscriminate cutting down of trees for the past one month in Sunshine Avenue, in Adyar. In the past month, more than 12 trees have been cut down owing to the rise of the new apartment complex. It is needless to say the benefits of trees - right 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 the sake of 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?

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