Damaged tree

stripped bark

Submitted

The Town of Fort Frances is none too pleased that vandals has stripped the bark off this tree near the swimming dock on the waterfront. Not only is it bad for the tree, but it could cost the taxpayers. The cost to replace a new mature tree is around $2,500-$3,000. On a similar note, the public is asked to dispose of their litter in garbage containers, as the town has had to waste too much town manpower this summer picking up after some people at the Point and along the walkway.
