Neon News 141105 Tree for free!

Hey Fanz!

Sure, there's lots of music in November, but before I get to that—I have a unique opportunity for you.

Remember that ice storm last winter? It destroyed my 70-year-old Siberian Elm tree, which has to be removed.

But when you remove a tree in Toronto, you have to replace it with a new tree.

Now, there's no place on my property for a new tree. Fortunately, I can plant this tree anywhere in the city of Toronto.

Which is where you come in! Can you use a free tree on your property in Toronto, or do you have a friend who can?

If you do, contact me at as soon as possible.

We don't need to plant until Spring, but I need a commitment to plant the new tree before I can get a permit to remove the old one.

Thanks for your help!

Now to the music . . .
