So South Tyneside Council strike again, upsetting campaigners from the South Shields Tree Action Group over the sometimes unnecessary felling of trees to make way for new paths.

This was illustrated by the story headlined "Council hits back at tree felling protests after action group set up" (May 30).

Meantime Storm Hector "bashed the borough" with high winds blowing over trees or blowing down their branches in our streets, parks and cemeteries.

Anyway, how about reading out the following sentence several times before reading it out backwards – Trees, trees, trees saying time my wasting been I have long how trees, trees, trees.
